The Durzon Spring
Ideal for an easy family stroll, this walk punctuated by the runoff of the Durzon, a tributary of the Dourbie River, takes you to the heart of a quiet and plenty of charm valley. At the end of the path, the resurgence of the Durzon awaits in haven of a freshness and shade where clear water flows in abundance.
The Durzon Spring
The flow of the source varies between 0,8m3/s and 35m3/s and has an average temperature of 11,13°C. The Durzon river runs for 6km and flows into the Dourbie river at the place "La Mouline".
- From the car park, take the road on the left towards Mas du Pré and cross the pretty bridge (you can see the hamlet on the left).
- At the iron cross, turn right on a wide dirt track which successively runs along meadows and fields. Then it shrinks to enter the wood. The Durzon River is nearby.
- At the intersection, leave the small tuff bridge on the right (private property of the descendants of Victor Hugo) and turn off towards left. 200m further, at the junction, take the right path along the river and continue for 800m to reach the spring.
- From the source, cross the Durzon on the concrete footbridge and take, at the bottom of the meadow, the path that goes up on the right towards Mas de Pommiers. Then follow the asphalt road to the starting point.
From the point 4: you can return to the starting point by the same route as on the way out.
