Description

Starting from the La Valette road in Tourris, take the GR51 towards Le Revest over 2 km, then take a path that rises to the left and leaves the GR (Long hiking trail).
The path turns into a track and rises brutally for 300m, then heads back towards Tourris on a higher path, parallel to the first, over 2 km.
Shortly after an unusual cave (a "must" visit), the path joins the GR51 route from Solliès-Ville and returns to the starting point.
Off-route: below a high-voltage line, near the Olivières Hamlet, walk due north along the EDF circuit (power company) to outstanding nooks and crannies.
