Walking and hiking

La promenade de la Forêt des Cèdres is a nice, easy walk: only 1.5 km long, the path is accessible to children and disabled people. The magnificent trees (planted in 1852) offer a welcome shade in summer.ée+496.pdf

Another relatively easy walk is from Bosque (Apt) to Pont Saint-Julien: 11km with only 70 m elevation, it takes about 3 hours. From the car park of the Bosque leisure centre , you will walk along vineyards, orchards and green oak woods on white limestone soil. You will pass a compost station, a lavender field and a ruined stone mill, then to a hill with a lovely view over Lacoste. Through the forest, the walk finishes at the Roman Saint-Julien bridge.

Ascending the Mourre Nègre from Cabrière d’Aigues. This walk of about 6 hours is for serious hikers, with 16km and 850m elevation on rocky terrain. It takes you to an altitude of 1151m. Starting from the car park in Cabriere d’Aigues, take la Montée de la Gaye with the car park on your left. Take the yellow-marked path on your left, the Rue de l’Invent up to the GR sign (Grande Randonnée). Follow signs to the Cime de Viere and Mourre Negre. From the top of the mountain you will have a fantastic panoramic view over the whole Luberon. You will walk back down through the forest from the Croisement du Gros Coulet.
