Hike : le Cheiron
This hike is very nice and easy. Children 5 years old can participate. It takes you above the Campsite, to the hamlet of La Palud, then through the mountain of Cheiron. Allow 3 hours for this hike of about 9km. Remember to take your sneakers and water. The road is a little rocky but bearable and somewhat slippery. We meet almost no cars. The path is not marked on the first part of the course. The second part is by the path leading to Lake Castillon.
From the campsite reception, we start on the right to reach the hamlet of La Palud. Spent a large barn, we are the first grassy plateau overlooking the valley. At the far south of Our Lady of the Rock as distinguished from the other mountains. The Destourbes the Robion but also Cadières Brandis are visible from the field. We then take a track and coupons through an old field of lavender (some plans still exist).
The track is lined with boulders quite original and Mediterranean plants such as lavender and thyme. On the other side of the mountain, we come to the route de la Baume - Blaron, perpendicular to the road to Lac de Castillon (route de Saint-André-les-Alpes). By car from Castillon Lake is just minutes from the campsite. On foot, you will have 3 hours to make the round trip.
We cross the county from Lake Castillon to take a hiking trail. The track is just down to the roundabout the Casino. We leave quietly towards the campsite.
