The Ridge Road

Belvédère route des Crêtesbis

Situated on the right bank of the Gorges du Verdon, on the area of La Palud sur Verdon, the panoramic Ridge Road (“Route des Crêtes”) (D23) is a 23 km loop road for visiting the most impressive drive of the Gorges du Verdon.

Fifteen viewpoints allow you to enjoy the best spots and discover the incredible features of the place. Over your visit you will be accompanied by a colony of vultures. If you are lucky you may meet chamois, wild boar and deer. You will notice a richness of flora, influenced by the mediterranean climate and altitude, as well as the micro-climate of the Gorges.

L'Escalès dans les nuages

Be careful, a part of the road is only one-way. It starts at the entrance of the village, on Castellane’s side. The other way will only lead you to Chalet de La Maline and the Blanc-Martel Trail, 8km from the village.

You need around 1hr 30mn to complete the loop drive, taking your time at the viewpoints.

DO NOT LEAVE ANY BELONGINGS OF VALUE INSIDE YOUR CAR.
