  • A walk where you will see many a Scotch pine and Mountain pine. Their role in the struggle against erosion in the Réal valley can be clearly seen here. For those who wish to, the Péone village heritage trail is located nearby.

  • From marker 105, take the path with yellow markers which heads up to La Baisse de la Vallette (marker 107). Along the way, you will be able to explore the different types of forest which correspond to different levels of altitude: Scotch pines, larch on the peak and then Mountain pines.
    At La Baisse de la Valette (marker 107), the view opens up, allowing you to admire the summits of the High Var Valley to the west and of the Massif du Mounier to the East.

    Head back down into the Bois de Rougnous. When the woods thin out, marker 106 indicates the direction of Aliège on the left, and this is the way you should go. The walk continues to bypass the Réal valley, which you will now be able to look over: the hoodoos and the exposed ochre rocks show how much erosive activity there is here. Cross the valley via a path which is renewed every time the mountain stream bursts its banks.
    Having crossed the valley, continue along a path to reach the hamlet of Aliège. You will then come across the road which will lead you back to the starting point in the matter of a few steps.
