Would love to get any recommendations for day hikes in les Alpilles. Looking for easy to moderate hikes not exceeding 10K. Prefer a loop hike, but any recommendations are appreciated! thanks!

Have you looked at the Grandes Randonnees? GR6 goes from Beaucaire to near Les Baux, St Remy, Eygalieres, and beyond, so you could choose whatever section works for you.

If you only want to walk one way between Les Baux and St Remy, you could take a bus in the other direction. Here's the interactive bus map. Click on the town for the schedule. www.sudest-mobilites.fr/carte_zoom.php…

Here is the list of the GRs with links to maps.

You did not say when you wanted to hike in the Alpilles, but you should keep in mind that many trails are closed in the late Summer and early Fall because of concerns about the potential for forest fires.

will be staying in Les Baux in early May......Interested in a picturesque day hike of 2-3 hours that's not too strenuous.

Any casual restaurant that serves an American Breakfast??

Hello,

I looked at this wonderful old forum and found exactly the information about the things we definitely want to do. The hike from St Remy to Le Baux looks like a must for us. Any other hikes you would recommend? We will be in the South of France in May 2015 and will probably stay in St.Remy for 2-3 days.

Thanks a lot,

To Nora, The Tourist Office in St Remy sells a hiking map for 2€. 7 differents trails from 1h40 to 6h.

The Trails from Les Baux to St Remy is really gorgeous and you can get a stunning view when on top. However be prepared, the up walk is moderate but continuous for a good 30mn. Trouble is if no car, you'll need to do it backwards....

Hope this will help.

The best info, Phidou! Thank you very much! The 30 min climb is not bad at all; we are used to it: we hike in Acadia National Park in Maine and also in New Hampshire, a bit of rock scrambling can only add fun to the whole adventure. The map will be so useful! Cannot wait to go to France again and see the landscapes that inspired Van Gough with my own eyes. You gave me wonderful recommendations and I really appreciate it.
