    Ste Victoire reveals its beauty of colors depending on the season. Depending on the orientation of the Sun you will not see the mountain in the same way. Used trail on these different faces, I soon know every rock and every path.

    Limestone which extends over 18 kilometres long and 1011 meter high "Peak of flies" and more a painter for 40 years it is fun to capture it on more than 80 paintings. One wonders why it is that a rock is there not making a mountain... Once arrived at the highest point we shout "Victory" a panoramic view splendid it sits on a beautiful, fragile environment to preserve "IMPERATIVELY" this territory that Mother Nature has shaped...

    Great hike has to do. Take the day from one end to the other. But there are several shorter courses. Very beautiful panoramic landscapes accompany you over the cavalcade.

    Simply sublime. Ascension is a bit difficult at times, but once at the top, this breath of fresh air mixed with this stunning view made us forget these difficulties. To see and review.

    Ascension is not always easy, but it's worth the beautiful view!

    Just beautiful. The view is breathtaking, there seems to be in another universe. Hiking in lasted about 2:30 hours fairly easy (there are still a little climb on rocks) and throughout the view is more impressive to the top (the cross).
