Arrivée au sommet du Montdenier, à 1751 m d'altitude

At the Montdenier campsite, after a first ascent to the hamlet of Vincel, take the direction of « Sommet de l’Agra » to the north. You will cross « Naverre » and the « Ravin de Mouresse ». From the Agra, a wonderful 360° panorama is offered to the walkers with a view on the summit of the Montdenier. To reach the northern crest of Montdenier, stay on the marked PR® trail leading to the « Col de la Cabane ».

☺ From the two beautiful summits of the Montdenier massif you will have privileged panoramas with : Sainte-Croix lake, the Valensole plateau, the Chiran mount and the Mourre de Chanier, the Lure mountain, the Vaucluse and Ventoux mounts, or the emblematic massifs of the Southern Alps such as Dévoluy, Oisans, etc.

After having fully enjoyed the splendid views, return to « Col de la Cabane » and follow « Marignol » and its old sheep barn. From there, the descent will be a little steeper and will lead back to the campsite of Montdenier. Turn left on the road, and return to the village via « Pierrefeu » and « Chemin de Courchon ».
