10. Mont Macaron : €30 – Around 3.00 hours – Difficulty V3+

Mont Macaron

Like the Mont Chauve, the Macaron is a summit that borders the city of Nice, and the sea view up to the gulf of Saint Tropez is magnificent. It is higher and therefore the climb longer, but the descent will also be longer. Technically the trail is easier and more earthy, there are far fewer rolling stones than at the Mont Chauve, the ground is more stable but the slope is sometimes steep. A great classic ride in winter.

Comme le Mont Chauve, le Macaron est un sommet qui encadre la ville de Nice, et la vue sur mer jusqu’au golfe de Saint-Tropez est magnifique. Il est plus haut et donc la montée plus longue, mais la descente le sera également. Techniquement le sentier est plus facile, plus terreux, il y a beaucoup moins de pierres roulantes qu’au Mont Chauve, le terrain est plus stable mais la pente est parfois raide. Un grand classique en hiver.Mont Macaron 3
