Hiking in Baziège Cycle #4 : signs

Our community the Sicoval has decided to mark with these signs 240 km of track roads mainly off- road. Each tracks have been described in very useful flyers.

Around Baziège, these tracks are named "Les chemins du Pastel" (the tracks of the Pastel). The Pastel (
woad)was a plant used to produce a blue tincture. It has been very cultivated in the area until the end of the 16th century before to be replaced by indigo.
