Altitude Profile (33 ft to 1,178 ft)
This route starts in Mandelieu and heads up into the Esterel mountains. The peaks are about 500m above sea level and the view over the mediterrainean sea is stunning.
The route is based on rough gravel fire roads and they are well signposted. Take care on the beginning of the trail from the highest point and around the mountain as it is narrow and rocky up to the first rock fall/rock belt and not allowed for biking. Just take it easy and greet everyone you meet!
Remember to carry enough water and a mobile phone. The rainy season washes out the trails and roads in the steeper sections, leaving only larger rocks and deep ruts. Take this into account when planning to ascend trails or roads that are steepish.
I recommend to get the blue hiking map from www.ign.fr. The map of this area is called 3544ET and you can get it from IGN.fr (http://loisirs.ign.fr/documentArticle.do?idDoc=5619933&siteId=5059600) or the news agents (presse in french, ask for "map de randonné").
