Greenways


Greenways have been developed with the aim of encouraging ecological travel all over the region. These facilities are completely protected and closed to motor vehicles, enabling visitor a safe and peaceful journey over relatively level ground, offering an invitation to discover the landscapes, each one at its pace .... Hikers, cyclists, rollers, people with reduced mobility, stroller, scooter, skate ... they are accessible to all and totally secured for activities with children! Car parks are available on each departure and arrival location.

Starting from the Tour Carbonnière:

One greenway connects, in perfect continuity, along the canal Saint-Laurent d'Aigouze to Gallician. Its departure is opposite the Tour Carbonnière. Distance: 9 km
