This trail explores the massif of Cape Canaille. The Mediterranean extends as far as the eye can see, along with amazing bay and cliff views including the Eagle's Beak. Stages: (Step 1) Departure parking, head south to the sea. Then follow the ride to Cape Canaille which rises to 363 m. This wide rocky plateau offers a view of the islands of Marseille to Cap Sicié towards Toulon. Continuing, an esplanade will allow you to safely enjoy the spectacle that is before your eyes. The path is often rocky and can be a bit difficult, but then large slabs will lead you easily to a new lookout. This is the starting point of a climbing route, the first to be equipped in the cliffs. Take a breath before the last ascent to the highest point of the ride: the Rock of Great Head. (Stage 2) The rock of Grande Tête. From the top of its 394 m, the sights are impressive including la Ciotat, Cap Canaille and far away Toulon. To the north, the distant ridges of Sainte-Baume, Garlaban. As soon as the Semaphore of the Bec de l'Aigle is in sight, fork on the right and go down in a small treed valley. Here, everything changes: the sea moves away, the gravel becomes earth, the scanty scrubland gives way to little pines wisely aligned. (Step 3) The Semaphore Of the Semaphore, you will have the best point of view on La Ciotat, the rock of the Bec de l'Aigle, and the Green Island, classified site protected by the General Council of Bouches-du-Rhône. The surroundings of the orientation table offer a dream picnic area before returning by the same route.
