7, Alto de Mezquiriz
(922m)


A new sign invites the pilgrim in three languages, French, Spanish and Basque to prayer at Notre-Dame de Roncevaux.


Directions:
After crossing the road do not go straight through the gate and up the track, though this might seem to be the thing to do. Go left down a small footpath before you reach the fence. Enter the gateway for the woods. The path veers right at a fork into a semi-shaded, undulating woodland. You thus avoid many of the hairpins on the road below.

The left footpath takes you down through a gate to a lane advancing from the right. Take it and 60m later you reach a road at a bend.  Take the old, shaded tunnel-like path, which metamorphoses into a lane. Turn left at fork with another lane coming from T and continue downhill to road at bridge over stream. [Right]: Turn left and then take left of two forks.
Turn right and continue on road for 100m then fork right down footpath, which becomes a lane. Continue across crash barrier at next bend. The road starts to climb again. Emerge on old main road in village of Viscarret.
