Hike : Colle Brayal - Verdon
This walk takes you into one of the four hamlets of Castellane Colle Brayal. After a steep climb, we crossed some of the laces Colle Brayal, and end up with an approach to Verdon. Allow about 3 hours for 8km.
This ride is open to all public and to children from 5 years. We take breaks regularly, which allows everyone to follow. Planning sneakers and water. The path, in the sense in which we take it, is not marked. Later down the hamlet, you will follow the signs hiking "Castellane". Typically the path is free of automobile traffic, apart from a few smaller portions.
From the Campsite reception we cross the Route Napoleon - RN 85 to advance us in the woods. We walk along a small stream, then pass a bridge before reaching a broad track.
The road narrows and becomes rockier. It rises slightly, it should be careful where you put your feet. Walking in single file is required. The so-called "difficult" part comes: a steep ascent that stretches for about twenty minutes. At the top, we are Brayal Colle. We take a moment to view the Cadières Brandis and the Robion. Then we begin the descent, between the villas of the hamlet, from a small chapel, a campground up the road. Salty waterfall Moulin de la Salaou already attracts attention. Having tasted the water and took some pictures, we cross the road following the sign indicating hiking "Castellane". At the end of the street, the Verdon appears. We make another break before leaving. The walk goes through the woods, along a river before returning to the bifurcation of you took in the way. Another 20 minutes and you're at the campsite.
