  • decided to do the 6 km loop that leaves the parking at the center of Forcalquier, climb up to the Mourres and down by the cemetery, we have innovated from the parking lot of the Mourres at the top and descent by Parise, the cemetery, the city and escalation by the edge above the Viou, Chapel St Marc and back to the parking lot. Varied landscapes (groves, Causse, prairies), a breed of rabbits in hutches (?), and pigs in freedom on the side of the Parise. Very rough markup in the Mourres and downhill towards the Parise, then part of hide and seek after, luckily we had a little plan of the hike. 2 h 15, 195 m in altitude, rather easy, but without great flavor.

  • Les Mourres is worth to visit. The landscape is unique with a beautiful flora. Small paths meander through the rocks. Not far from Forcalquier - at Les Mourres, a parking with two panels with various is explanations and directions. There are many walking and hiking trails behind the rocks. Nature pure is certainly more populated without people (May) in high season. But deserted in May and wonderfully quiet. You should not miss this natural beauty!

  • Rando made with 2 children, 5 and 8 years on the tour, which leaves from the center of Forcalquier, in front of the tourist office and who returned by the cemetery (2 h 30 - 6 km - 226 m elevation). Markup perfect until the Mourres site itself says. There was the disaster. Difficult to identify and to continue the route, by security we returned on foot by the D12. If we go by car to the site of the Mourres where there is a car park and we do the loop of 1 h is not too bad for not respecting the itinerary, we find good parking. I still think it would limit the excessive straying of some hikers who can destroy the site. But we had to be returned to the village and find the circuit was complicated. We are not back by the class cemetery. Hiking paying 2 euros plan sold by the OT has no indication helping to locate (kind cross the D12, go through a farm, along the houses up to...) and was not useful except to remember. Fortunately we had plenty of water, good legs and good morale.
