Title in french : Morgiou par les crêtes

Type : family

Mountains : Calanques

City : Marseille

Duration : 1h20

Distance : 3.2km

Variation in height : 70m

Maximum altitude : 245m

An easy hike that allows you to reach the main peak and enjoy an overlooking view on the Morgiou and Sormiou creeks, as well as a beautiful perspective of the entire park.

Except two slightly exposed passages where you will stay vigilant about your children, the route takes place on a wide path with a small difference in height.

However, you can continue towards Cap Morgiou and walk much longer .

If you decide to keep walking, when arriving to the next col (20 mins - 150m down), you can either go on the plateau of the Cape Morgiou (20 mins - 70m up), or turn left to make a loop. For this option, you go through the Morgiou harbor and then back by a side trail (1h15 / 110m up).

A carpark exists at the Col of the Escourtines, the starting point of the hike, but places are very few and we urge you to arrive before the end of the morning.

If this small carpark is full or that access to creeks is closed to cars, then you will have to stay at the Baumettes carpark and reach the col by walk (20 mins).
