Hike : Malouan - Brayal
This walk is for the family and shorter than the others. We offer 1h30, with a west facing Notre-Dame du Roc and village.
This trail is described as wild. Indeed, recently discovered, the path is not always well marked and are sometimes driven into the woods or along fences almost abandoned. But the view is worth a visit. Remember to pack sneakers and water. This walk is open to children from 5 years.
On leaving the camp, we follow the road to the campground Napoleon -RN85 the Provencal. After a left fork, the adventure begins as we have to cross the river and climb the edges. A few yards away, at the corner of a field abandoned, we enter the fresh and green undergrowth, covered with boxwood and other plants of the Southern Alps.
We climb a hillside to lead to a forest track. At the top of the track, in a large field, the landscape is breathtaking. On your right the Cadières Brandis, and left the Roc de Castellane and the Notre-Dame du Roc watching over the village below.
Again, we walk the woods before returning to the remains of a castellanaise life. Nature takes its course on the wheels of a small tractor, and while we begin the descent, you can admire the Roc, before moving into a pine forest. After a rocky descent, we pass a river walk along a stream and a final undergrowth before returning to Campsite.
