Plateau St Barnabe / Puy de Tourrettes

By popular request, another walk on a Sunday. This one is guaranteed (maybe) to be easier than the last couple of weeks. We also have a couple of choices to extend the walk, either going at the top, or to take an easier route down. The short version and the longer version . Both follow the same route up to (948 m – b.85). The higher route looks like it offers a better view, and looking at the map doesn’t seem to have any difficult parts. We can decide based on the weather, the walking conditions and how keen everyone feels.

This is an EASY walk, between 3-5 hours walking, and between 350m and 650m ascent (we make the choice after 1 hour).
After the excitement of last week, we agreed that we should start earlier, and given the transport, meeting point is now La Colle-sur_Loup, at 9:30. Villeneuve Loubet train station is en-route if anyone needs to be picked up there. I think there is parking there, but depending on how people are travelling and where from, we may change the detail.
Please make sure I know in advance if you intend to come, and that I (or whoever is giving you transport) have your phone number in case of any changes (like bad weather). My number is 06 80 01 11 09.

    It was fairly torrential in Antibes at 9:30, so Jupiter and I went to Isola to play in the snow, where it was much nicer! This walk looks like it should go back on the waiting list, it looks like it might be very scenic.
