Routes accessible to beginners

For beginners, a recommended hike is the ascent to Notre-Dame de Constance, a small 12th-century chapel perched on a hill overlooking Bormes and its surroundings. You can reach the chapel via a winding path through the scrub or take a more direct route. The round trip takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, allowing time to admire the stunning view. Another option is the Lac du Trapan hike (6km), located at the entrance of Bormes, with convenient parking at the trailhead.

For an easy yet slightly longer hike, consider exploring the Forêt du Dom, a 17-kilometer trail in the heart of the Maures massif.

More difficult hikes

If you’re seeking more challenging hikes, two options are available: the Hauts de Bormes trail (14 kilometers) and the Trois Cols trail (17 kilometers). The Trois Cols trail, accessible from Notre-Dame de Constance, takes you through the passes of Caguo Ven, Gratteloup, and Landon. It is a demanding hike with significant elevation changes, taking approximately 6-7 hours. This trail is the most difficult in the area.

Randonnée route des Crêtes

The Heights of Bormes trail, starting from the Gratteloup pass, forms a loop that traverses the highlands of Bormes before descending to the plain. It also requires 6-7 hours to complete.
