Hike : Maison Forestière
This hike is one of the most difficult that we offer. The course is longer, the two steep climbs, and the return is on a gravel path. However, you can bring your children if they like walking. Also, it's a pretty good workout if you want to make more difficult steps in the Gorges du Verdon for example. 3:30 therefore intend to ten kilometers, think of sneakers, water and possibly a cap. The path back is marked, as is the trail that leads to Lake Castillon (walking). This walk takes us to a ruin of a forest house, located at 1030m altitude.
From the Campsite reception, we went to the roundabout Casino. The first problem involved here. The climb is on a paved road and is not slippery. However, it is quite steep. We make a first break near the house of Escoulaou. We leave quietly on the road, then on a piece of track. After a few meters turn left to cross a dry river bed and start to climb the mountain.
We operate across the Provençal scents of pine, wild lavender or thyme. The hilly road made some laces and through the forest. At the intersection, a short climb to the right will lead us directly to the forest house. From above, you can see Notre Dame du Roc (which is 911m above sea level) chapel, Robion the Destourbes and Verdon valley below. After a break, we go down to the last bifurcation. Starting right, we'll go down quietly mountain, a wide forest track. The road is rocky but with no real difficulty. The descent take about 1 hour, before falling on your steps to the Casino.
