Geological curiosities, rare species and biodiversity, a thousand-year-old heritage and mysterious legends: this trail will help you discover the hidden wonders of the Annot sandstone site.

6 km

Take Avenue de la gare. A few metres before the station, pass under the railway tracks and turn right. The path winds its way up between sandstone boulders. After the Roubine rock shelter, the route crosses marl and then becomes steeper. At a fork in the road, head for the Jardins du Roi. This short loop takes you through the impressive Garambes gorge before rejoining the main route. Turn left towards the chambre du Roi.
The path continues along a wide but vertiginous ledge before reaching the wooded canopy. After the Abri du Plateau, make the short return journey to the viewpoint. Cross the Portettes arch and descend into the chestnut grove. At the Espaluns belvedere, make the short round trip to the left to discover a magnificent rock shelter. The descent is punctuated by several eyebrows before joining the paved path leading to the Vers la Ville chapel.
To find out all the secrets of this sensitive natural area, scan the QR codes on the markers along the route, or ask for the discovery booklet at the tourist office.

    Moderately difficult up to the Chambre du Roi, the route then includes a vertiginous section (difficulty red). After heavy rain, the descent is slippery, so it's advisable to follow the route clockwise or to limit yourself to a return trip to the plateau.
