Hike : Le Rancoumas
This hiking trail around 3:30 provides a different approach to the Verdon gorges and torrent. Well marked path that will take you near the Verdon, with shadow over much of the course. You'll have time to admire the cliffs Escalès, the parade of Balsams Feres and the corridor Samson, not to mention the deck of Tusset. Kids can do it without real difficulty.
From the inn of Point Sublime, you should follow the red and white markings of the GR4 GR49 and then continue on the GR49. You will pass through some oak forests before reaching the bridge Tusset dating back more than two millennia. After about ten minutes, leave the GR49 to get to the lookout Rancoumas. Watch the old hamlet of Encastel below the path.
Follow the shaded forest track, take the water to the source and start quietly back to Point Sublime.
