Itinerary

After visiting the beautiful medieval village of Bazian, head eastwards along the road via the old school and the old dovecote. At the crane, turn right towards "La Maisonnette". After 600 m, the road becomes a white path and, on the next bend, a PR marker indicates a dirt track between the fields. Continue to a crossroads on the edge of the forest. Take the path which descends on the right. Horse riders beware of low branches! Climb, descend and climb again to arrive at a small tarmac road 1.5 km further on. Turn left and pass "Moïse" with its surprising mausoleum. The walk continues along the markers on the right and climbs up to the hamlet of "Pédantin". The small road becomes a grassy path. Continue along this ridge path for 1.5 km passing through fields and along the edge of a wood with its bird shooting shelter. Before turning right at the crossroads between four paths with many markers, look southwards over the Gascony countryside stretching far into the distance. Walk down the path between the trees and continue between the fields, pass another crossroads and after 1 km, on your right, take the path on the left, just after a blackberry hedge. Follow the electric fence to the old "Moulin d'Usclade". Turn around, there is a magnificent view over the Pyrenees if the weather is fine! Make your way down the white path which becomes a tarmac road. On the left, you will see the "Rambos" estate with its pastures and horses. Further on, pass the "Sariac" ruin and on the bend, take the grassy path up to the second mill in Bazian, From here, there is an excellent view over the village with its porch-tower, small church and castle. The grassy path continues on the left of the mill and descends along the hedges to Bazian.
