Circuit walk around the river Endre and Gournier mill

• From  Le Muy, go onto  the local road No D25 heading to Callas. At the roundabout, follow direction to Bagnols (local road No D47).

• After a short walk over the Endre bridge (blue mark), take a sharp left turn at the crossroad junction. You will find there a  car park and a picnic area. 

• Continue along the waymarked GR 51 footpath up to Pradineaux forest house (after a walk  for about  880 yards you can pause and take a look  on your right at  the remains of a lime kiln). 

• Further follow the track and head torwards  the car park up to a barrier: from there, look out for the footpath on your right and keep straight ahead up to the old mill.

• From the old mill, turn right up the hill.

• Walk straight up to “Gournier” rock, an outstanding panoramic view.  The path goes now downhill, and after about 54 yards turn left and follow a small footpath up to a rocky platform.

• Once you have walked past  a maritime pine,  turn right on to the narrow lane and follow it for about 659 yards. It soon becomes a wide track. Follow it up to a white barrier.  From the barrier turn left and follow the path that goes up to  a small stele.

• From there go right and follow the “Corbieres” track. Continue until you reach an asphalt road.

• Cross the road and head torwards a tiny walkpath, about 54 yards further, onto your right.

• At the first roundabout you come across, keep right and head torwards a second roundabout. Keep right until you reach a barrier.

• Look out for a small walkpath alongside the road and follow it until you are back onto  the starting point of this circuit walk.
