What to Expect

Route Guide

Starting from the doorsteps of La Vielle Ferme turn left at the gates and follow the road up and away from Mauleon Barousse village. This was the main route to Esbareich village until the building of an impressive viaduct linked Esbareich to the main road up through the Barousse valley. Now the track is mainly used by walkers and mountain bikers.


You will soon come across Mauleon Barousse's 2nd chateau from where the path  starts to open out onto fields and woodland and winds its way up to Esbareich.

At Esbareich take some time to walk amongst the ancient streets and houses before enjoying glorious views back down the valley for the walk back.

To make this a circular route join the main road left out of the village and over the impressive viaduct. Once across the viaduct, turn left and follow the road back down to Mauleon Barousse.
