This family walk takes the shady paths of the slopes of Mirepoix.
From the Croix of Terride the view extends from the bastide to the massif of Tabe and to Bastonis where is a breeding of deer. You can see these magnificent animals closely with a little discretion and a lot of luck.

Take the D625 towards Villefranche L., then take the first right. Follow the D106 to the right towards the hamlet of Bartas where the red and white markers of the GR7 appear that you will follow to the Cross Terride.
At Cross Terride, leave the GR7 markers to follow, on the left, the yellow markers of the farm road to the foot of a wooded hill.
After asscending into the undergrowth, follow the path that veers to the right.
After 400 meters, the vegetation changes and you cross a pine forest. Again, take time to admire the countryside.
Arriving at the hamlet of Marty, take the road down to the right and pass next to the ruin of Bourdicou.
500 meters after the ruin of Bourdicou, leave the road and markers to use the red and white GR7 markers, starting right at the stone cross on a runway.
The latter descends along large fenced parks where magnificent deer are raised.
Cross a little stream before rising towards the Croix de Terride where you descend straight down the path that will bring you back in the opposite direction to the starting point.
The Croix of Terride :
It marks the meeting of several paths including one is an old Roman road going to the hamlet of Bize. The vertical stone of slightly curved shape probably comes from a keystone which could be issued from the Castle of Terride.
