This hike is for experienced walkers and offers beautiful sceneries above the Ceans Valley and the mythical cliffs that make Orpierre an exceptional climbing site.


  1. Turn left at the restaurant "Le Portail" and walk deeper into the alleys of the old village following the GR markings. Go up until you find a track above the village. Turn left and find a GR sign, then right on the path.
  2. Follow the path going up through the ruins of the ramparts; pass in front of an oratory dedicated to  "the Virgin" and continue until you reach a ledge. Walk along the path that builds a balcony on the other side of the rocky hillock (Rocher du Gros Doigt).
  3. At the crossroads of a track, continue straight on the path until  the intersection of a track and  take a right.
  4. In the hairpin bend, turn left following the GR markings up to the top. Continue and reach the summit of Suillet (1324 m). Walk down  to arrive at an intersection where you then turn right (leave the GR marking and follow the PR marking). Continue on the same path until you reach a track.
  5. Follow it downhill.
  6. Just before a left turn, take the path which turns off to the right.
  7. At the bottom, turn right and always follow the opposite direction to the track crossings. Then walk down an asphalt road.
  8. Join the road and turn right on the D 30 to get back to the starting point.
