Need to Know

From the pass, you can drop down the Val de Lègue trail to the east to visit the Villa Gallo Romaine de Saint-Pierre de Vence ruins, and fields that produce crazy numbers of red poppies each May. You can also use the Hike-a-Bike to Les Opies Summit to visit the old fire lookout tower and some great panoramic views.

Begin riding west at the pass at Latitude/Longitude: 43.7146 N / 4.98252 E.
