Are you ready to follow the green signage ? The path you're about to take may be the longest but it's also the one with the best views in the heart of the garrigue among the Mediterranean plant species.
After you leave the village and pass Silvacane Abbey, you start going up towards the Chaîne des Côtes ridge line. As you get higher and higher, the views open up and the beauty of the trail gives you a lift: Saint-Victoire Mountain, Massif de l’Etoile, Pilon du Roi Rock and Sainte-Baume. Take the time you need to soak up the views: unobstructed views of the Luberon and Mont Ventoux to the north!
The way back to the village takes you through the Baume valley in the cooling shade.
