The Blanc-Martel Trailhead

The Blanc-Martel trail is one of the must-sees when visiting the Gorges du Verdon

The Blanc-Martel trail is one of the two trails along the Verdon, it links the Point Sublime to the Chalet de la Maline, a 5h hike at least! (in one direction only). You can of course retrace your steps whenever you want. Here we take the Blanc-Martel trail for a few hundred meters, which is enough to take in the sights. It should be noted that the start of the Blanc-Martel trail is easily accessible by car and that it is the easiest point to access the banks of the Verdon. Don't hesitate to discover this charming path.

Along the Blanc-Martel Trail
Even if you only walk 200 meters along the Blanc-Martel trail, you will find beautiful scenery. It's up to you, but if you're not a seasoned hiker you'll have to retrace your steps back to your car. It is not possible to leave the gorge without walking for several hours! There is no loop possible.
