Climbing towards the Maurel Mountain, you enter the Verdon Regional Natural Park.

Take the opportunity to contemplate the faunistic and floristic richness of these spaces! Ride calmly and you may discover trolles, martagon lilies in spring, the flight of Alexanor, a rare and protected butterfly that loves lavender. You may surprise a few chamois or other gelinottes, if you are discreet...

This mountain is also an area of pastoralism where you may meet, depending on the season, flocks of sheep.

This is why the route does not climb to the top (stubble zone of the sheep). A long climb awaits you, so take the time to admire and contemplate!

Maurel Mountain is an area of pastoralism. Avoid any nuisances to the shepherd on this site which is also his place of work.
