near Nébias, Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées (France)

This is a very nice walk that first takes you a little higher than the village itself to an old windmill with extensive views almost all around slightly above 600 metres and then dives into the woods along a narrow, winding beautifully soft track until you reach a private lake that you have to go around until you reach the lowest point of the walk at 480 metres.

Then you start to gradually climb until you reach a 'Point de vue' at 520 metres with extensive views to the north.

After this the path still goes up gradually until you reach a kind of primaeval forest which looks like and walks like a labyrinth because of the great variety of narrow paths among huge and less huge lichen/moss-clad boulders and trees which are also full of ivy and ferns.

This really is an exceptional experience because it is so unexpected, bizar even, although you know what to expect of course if you do the walk, but still...

We only did a small part of this labyrinth but you could make it yourself far more interesting or maybe even difficult.

Once you pop out of the labyrinth you are definitely in the 21st century again with a view of the open fields around Nebias and the mountains to the south.
