Description

Departure in les Mées, République square.
Les Penitents trail is the prefered route to discover this particular rock called "le Poudingue". The latter has been created, a few millions years ago, by the consolidation of rock debris, which were ripped from the alpin channel when it was raising from the ground and rolled by the "ancestor" of la Durance.

From the village center, go towards the campsite. Just after the latter, the trail goes on bailey, on the left towards the rocks. The climb winds in the pines, with an arid flora around, specificity of Provence.
