You get a little glimpse of it by taking the forest trail that runs there between the dry stone sheds.

At the end, awaits you a playful undergrowth trail that descends to the edge of the Laye river, which takes its source not far from there.

A few strokes of pedals between the fields allow you to return quietly to the village.

Perfect for an evening tour, or for an approach to the activity...

To see: Wood of the Defense.

Important: during the summer period, from 15 June to 15 September access to the forest ranges of the Alpes de Haute-Provence is regulated, please contact the referring authorities.
