Trail: Plan du Var – Ferion – Col de la Porte

For this second trail since I came back from the Kangchenjunga, I wanted to check how I felt on a “long” trail. So I went around Plan du Var and Mont Ferion where there are plenty of choices to make nice and steep trails. The one described here is quite nice as it follows the crests above Coaraze and offers great views over the Alps and the Riviera.

Distance: 45 km, ascent: 2950 m / descent: 2950 m.
