A medium difficulty circular walk with beautiful views over Hyères bay.
A half-day walk to enjoy in the winter.
This walk is not listed (except by me) and so there are no waymarks.
Calculated time is computed with the distance, the height difference, and an average speed of 2.2 mph. For an intermediate walker, this time includes small breaks.
(D) Park on the small embankment on the right on the road out of Les Troisième Borrels.
Walk about a hundred metres down the road to the bus stop, then turn right towards the hamlet.
After the hamlet, take the track on the right. At a fork (1) take the path on the right. Pass the barrier preventing access to vehicles. Cross a small stream to the right.
Take the track on the right, which then turns into a path.
You will reach a path that you should then take on your left. Carry straight on.
This path takes you wading across several small streams and then comes to a very steep, but short slope, that you will need to climb up.
You are now on the ridge (2) with Salins plain and Hyères bay at your feet.
Now take the access track on your left which follows the line of the ridge.
When you reach a crossing with several paths (3), take the leftmost path which leads down into the valley.
You will reach a ford (4). Immediately take the path on the left which climbs slightly upwards and then keep left until you reach a pond.
At the pond (5) take the path on the right which becomes more and more indistinct. It is not very well marked but it goes down to the track, which you join after a fence.
Walk alongside the fence on your left until you reach the gate.
Walk back up the track to the right towards the hamlet and then on to your vehicle.
