I went this trail w two girls who hasn't done much hiking, and I suggested this one was rated as easy. Turned out to be reaching the head of Lion wasn't that easy for them and they found it quite challenging. Track isn't very clear to climbing rocks but you will not lose baring as where you are headed and which direction you are suited to go is very visible. There are also few other hikers and we all had multiple cuts from bushes Good walking shoes could help. Breathtaking views and good photo spots.

Amazing view

Fantastic views! We left at about 8 PM and were at the top at 9:30. We had scenic views of the city the whole way up, and were surprised by the historical preservation. Yes, a lot of stairs, but absolutely worth the climb. It is also possible to take the gondola up to the top for fairly cheap (6 euros for students) but I would suggest climbing up if you have the chance.

Lovely walk up a shady track. On the open top in summer there were bilberries galore. Eagles circling. Easy family walk in good weather but start early enough not to rush. The unmetalled road at the bottom has two tracks turning right from it. Don't take the obvious lower one. The higher one is just round the corner (it's actually a cross roads ie smaller path crossing forest road). Once near the top the route is self evident. On the way back down head for a gate in a fence.

Amazing hike with great views, beautiful beach and Girolata village is wonderful !!

This is an easy relaxing trail along a beautiful river south east of France. I use to do it once or twice a year, when the weather is not good enough to go in the near Jura or Alpin mountains, and it is only 40mn from Lyon. We can see a few fishermen, cyclists, runners, and family hikers. There are places to stop for a lunch for instance at Chavanay, on the south part of the loop, or upon departure from Les Roches de Condrieu, or Condrieu. No need to mention also the famous wines: Condrieu and Côtes Roties from this area!

Another route starting from Bougue. A path that connects Bougue and Laglorieuse, first by the east and back by the west, between forest and fields. The hiker will borrow a small portion of the greenway between Mont-de-Marsan and Gabarret. Topo-Guide: Rando Guide n°10 (Marsan) édité par le CG40

From the village of Banos located on a hillside overlooking the Gabas, the hiker crosses corn fields by a sunken path that leads through a forest with various species. Then the route joins Montaut and its viewpoint over the Adour valley and Gabas valley. The return to Banos goes north, takes the old railway of Chalosse, and ends with a climb to the initial promontory. Topo-Guide: Rando Guide n°2 (Chalosse) édité par le CG40

Located on the northern edge of the Upper Chalosse and at the confluence of the Gabas creek and the Adour river, the small village of Toulouzette is the launching point of this hike in the riparian and wetland zone formed by the Adour river. A pond where one can observe mallards, little egrets; then an oxbow lake, then the Adour river. Hikers will then head south and cross the cultivated plateau between the Adour river and the Gabas creek. After crossing the Gabas, the route follows the green path of Chalosse on the hillside of Montaut before joining Toulouzette. Topo-Guide: Rando Guide n°4 (Haute Chalosse) édité par le CG40

A new route starting from the Tilleuls square in Saint-Justin. This very nice trail begins at the edge of a vineyard producing the famous Armagnac brandy, produce of the distillation of white wines. Then the hiker will walk along a small pond that may freeze in winter. After the cross of sauveté, bordering the territories of the clergy, the Church of Douzevielle and its apse of the XI century appears between the pines. Some airials, and the track goes back to the village along the Douze river in the forest.

Start from the church of Bergonce. The walker sinks into the forest world of the Landes forest. Mainly pine wood (maritime pine); the cultivated forest also offers other species: common or tauzin oak, acacia, hazelnut ...
