“This is a modified loop to add mileage and can be modified to close the loop. Easy trail with some technical passages.”— NICOLAS NOUVEL
Once in Biot, on top of the hill, you can stop at a cafe and walk around this historical village with a church from the 13th century.
This hike is mostly in the woods, starting in the charming French village of Valbonne. It will lead you first into the small wild valley of the Bruguet River (which is dry in the summer).
After the first loop in typical Provence scrubland, you'll follow the trail upstream along the Brague River. This river can be violent and destroying. It runs through an almost virgin forest that provides some nice shade. In season, there are some very nice waterholes to cool off in.
The hike then ends by retracing your steps along the Brague River and then continuing on to finish in the town of Biot.
