Forcalquier To The Abbey Of Salagon At Mane
Distance: 4 miles (6½km)
Total ascent: 600 feet (180m)

"We will have time to explore this historic town and its market, perhaps climbing to the Citadel to see the carillon and observe the magnificent view before setting off. Our tracks are stony in places but never too steep as we cross the wooded limestone plateau on our journey to Mane. We will pass interesting stone bories, old shepherds’ shelters, and it may be possible to visit the ancient Abbey of Salagon and its ethno-botanical gardens."

Highlight: A local interest guide will accompany the group today to explain more about the local area.
