Description

Very easy parking at chemin de la Lèque (1).
To avoid walking on the road and to enjoy the scenery by the sea, enter the pine forest to reach the path alongside the cliff. When you arrive at a fence, turn left onto the road. (2)
Continue on the road which is the coastal footpath (yellow waymarks) and turn right at the intersection.
Ignore the trails and road to the left and right, they lead to homes.
Go straight ahead to the gate (3).
Follow the trail leaving the other paths on the left and right.
When you get to the edge of the cliff, continue on the left until you get to an intersection (4).
To the right is a more athletic trail (my choice because it is easier uphill than down).
This balcony trail will take you to a beautiful landscape between sea and mountains, and the (5) to a spring and wash house.
The (6) offers a climb to Cape Sicié over 560m in length and a drop of 150m.
At the top (7) turn right, passing under the television relay station to access the Notre-Dame du Mai chapel with a 360 ° panoramic view.
To get back take the Ridge path (chemin de Crête) (7) to reach the (4) and back to the vehicles using the same route as when starting.
