High On Hiking

Posted by dheimpel - Created: 14 years ago

Hello all fellow fiends for walking. I am starting a hiking club. The first hike of which will take place on the Saturday the 30th of August. I am leaning on driving way up the Tineé valley past the little town of Valdeblore until les Vacheries de Milleforts. There you have a splendid trail that takes you past three emerald lakes up to the 2,700 m peak of Pépiori. On the way down you walk through a marmot-infested valley. In all, the hike takes 3.5 strenuous hours with time for a relaxed lunch by the first lake. It is an hour and a half a way from Nice, where we could meet and proceed caravan style at 8-ish. That way we can beat the life taking thunderstorms that tend to start dumping at around four in the afternoon. If anyone is interested I can be reached at 06 79 89 04 51 or dheimpel@hotmail.com. My name is Daniel by the way.

By the way I have changed the venue of the firt hike from the Valley of the Marmots to Mt. Chauve because it a bit easier of a starter and it is much closer to Nice; only twenty five minutes from the center. All the best, Daniel
