Another route starting from Notre-Dame de Lussole (or Saint George de Lussole), typical church of Gabardan country. This tour through the pine forest will give the opportunity to observe "maisons landaises" (traditional houses) with their porch roof and wood oven. A section of the route stretches along the old railway line between Bourriot and Gabarret. Hikers can combine this loop with the visit of the sources of Mouncaut or another loop starting from the town of Bergonce.

Departure from the Romanesque church of Saint George de Lussole (XIIth) and its bell-gable, style that is found in other municipalities in the province. The forest track accompanies the walker to a sandy track inside the pine forest and winds its way to a small oratory chapel heralding the Mouncaut sources. They recall the old pastoral beliefs and immerse the visitor in a haunted atmosphere of witches and magicians. This setting is accentuated by the presence of cloths hanging on the branches, left by the pilgrims who came to visit the three miraculous sources: Saint-Eutrope (headaches), St. Anthony (stomach ache), Saint-George (rheumatisms). Extreme caution is recommended in October and November, hunting season for common wood pigeons.
