Back and forth hike on the heights of Saint-Geniez allowing you to enjoy a remarkable panorama on the Hautes-Alpes and the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. Punctuated by pastoral areas and  paragliding sites.


  1. Behind the fountain,  take the road that climbs along the cemetery and quickly turns into a track. Continue on this stony track, up towards the Pas de l'Echelle.
  2. From the Pas de l'Echelle, after enjoying the panorama of the Alps, turn right onto an almost hidden path that climbs the ridge (Caution: passing a fence). Continue on the ridge until reaching a track that goes downward.
  3. At the post, fork to the left on the path. Cliff hanging path on the mountainside may impress!

  4. At a ledge, make a full turn to the left through the broom and climb the ridge that goes straight to the top of the Trainon.
