The la Calm plateau hike follows a 4km return trail and 230 meters of ascent. This 2-hour walk offers a new look at the fortress of Roquefixade.
From Roquefixade village square, take the path up towards the castle. Halfway up, an orientation table offers a spectacular panoramic view that allows you to spot the various peaks of the Tabe massif, the Lesponne valley and Montségur castle in the distance. Continue on, then turn right at the castle sign and start climbing the steep path. Once at the foot of the fortress, admire the view overlooking the bastide de Roquefixade before continuing your ascent to reach the highest point of the plateau de la Calm.
You’re there! Your efforts will be amply rewarded by the 360° open panorama and the bird’s-eye view of the castle and the valley below. The hike is particularly worth the detour at the end of the day to admire the last rays of the sun and the shimmering lights of twilight.
This is the ideal place to share a picnic and enjoy a magnificent sunset after a busy day.
