Title in french : Sentier des Dansaïres
Type : classical
Mountains : Garlaban
City : Roquevaire, Lascours
Duration : 3h
Distance : 7.4km
Variation in height : 600m
Maximum altitude : 676mThe Dansaïres footpath is a classic hiking to the Garlaban summit, accessible to everyone and offering magnificent views from the top.
After leaving the small car park of Roquevaire, the footpath gradually climbs along the Garlaban Ravine unto the Barquieu Source.
Then you attack the steepest part, consisting of a scree followed by a very steep pass secured by chains.
Next, you just need to take the path going to the Garlaban cross to enjoy the 360° view on Marseille and its hinterland.
To return, either you take the same path back or you do the loop as shown on the IGN routing map, so you attack a new gradual rise followed by a nice way down to the bottom of a vale.
