Quite demanding in terms of pedaling for an easy level, especially in the summer heat, this walk around telescopes and the astronomy center is rich in heritage along the way: washhouses, chapels, watchtowers, mills, but also wet meadows, trees lodgings, pastoral crals, etc.

It is also embellished with beautiful panoramas of the mountain of Lure, the eastern Luberon, the Valensole plateau and the entrance to the Gorges du Verdon in the distance...

Attention: presence of herd protection dogs on the Craux.

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.
