Description

The trail of Puech d'en Blanc begins on the heights of the medieval village of Aussillon. It goes in the Black Mountain overlooking the Mazametain basin and arrives at the Lake of the Montagnès. A few kilometers on the GR7, and the trail returns to the village.

At the gates of the mountain, the historic village of Aussillon stands up; it has been inhabited for centuries first of all by Gauls, then by Wisigoths.


Along the half-timbered houses, the path goes up to cooler places, across chestnut-trees and rapidly high resinous trees. The forest tracks are above 300m from the village and the Thoré Valley that you can admire through clearings. Soon you will see the clear waters of the “Montagnès Lake”where you can swim or have a nice nap under the trees.



The Pic de Nore which is not far shows its large slopes with meadows and moors. Back to the village, you will have walked with the old generations of woodcutters, shepherds or peddlers who used to walk between plain and mountain for their prosperity.
