The spring path
The medieval village of Hautpoul offers a superb panorama of the Mazametain basin. Discover the vestiges of Saint Sauveur, take the GR7 and continue your hike to the castle Trumpet then finish your route to the two old fountains.
This path takes you through the picturesque little village of Hautpoul, perched above Mazamet on the mountainside. The charming medieval character of the village will urge you on and up. You can stop for a minute under the old chestnut tree in the square from which the walk begins; but before that, climb up to the statue of the Virgin Mary to admire the view of the valley below. You can get a real feel for the village perched on the mountainside with its natural defences formed by the rocky cliff faces below. The view will amply reward your efforts so far. This walk will enable you to enjoy a rich variety of landscapes in just a few kilometres, passing through the forest with a number of different species and constantly changing flora. You will come across other historical sites as well as the fascinating village of Hautpoul; the church of St Pierre des Plots, the remains of the tower of the chateau trompette, and finally the Spring path that lends its name to this circuit.
