The walk

  • The walk is 12 km long in total, and you can expect up to 4 hours of walking time along the trails. 
  • The paths are well-worn but rocky: you can choose to wear walking boots but trail runners are sufficient if you're used to walking on uneven surfaces. You can expect a sustained climb from the village of Gigondas and up to the Dentelles ridges (up to two hours of climbing).
