Trail: Vence – Coursegoules

Today Anna, Yannick and I did a new Trail running between Vence and Coursegoules. This 30 km Trail is pretty interesting a with mix of good tracks, technical and rocky descents and with constant nice views over the sea and the French Riviera. We made a loop starting in Vence and passing through Gourbel, Coursegoules and St Barnabé.

There are several options to make the Trail shorter, for instance by returning to the Col de Vence after the signpost 129 (Bastille de Vescagne) or from Coursegoules.
