Walks and Treks in the Maritime Alps


Walks and Treks in the Maritime AlpsPeering down over the French Riviera is a forbidding barrier of light grey rock. Rising to over 3000m from the shore, the Maritime Alps straddle the international French-Italian border for 190km. Soaring peaks, glittering lakes and picturesque stone villages await the walker, along 600km of mapped pathways, through two national parks.

This is a wonderful area even for novice walkers, with clear waymarking and good maps, worlds away from the hustle and bustle and crowds of the coast, and this book offers a wide selection of routes throughout the area. 18 graded day walks are described in this title, on both the French and the Italian sides, from 6km to 20km in length. It discusses 6 long treks, including a 5-day traverse of the Parc National du Mercantour and a 7-day traverse of the Parco Naturale delle Alpi Marittime. It offers full information about accommodation down in the valleys and up in the mountains.
