From La Brigue take sentier B49 which climbs on a rocky path and then becomes a ridge.
Facing southwest it’s quite sunny but with beautiful views down to La Brigue and the Boselia valley.
Climb to B285 (denivilé 340m) at Col de Boselia and turn left.
Just before the Col there are picnicking spots. The wide track downhill is shady with pines and affords a nice view of Tende.
Easy walking Turn left after a while to take GR52A which is a narrrow path that winds around the Col Lubaira.
It’s rocky but a gentle slope. This is also quite sunny but pretty. The whole walk took about 3 hours. For birds, I heard a cuckoo and a “tetu”. The vegetation is mostly scrub.
My favorite stream.
From Col de Brouis take the Rte Armee des Alpes.
Then shady gentle route to Baisse de Levens.
Then route to Mont Gros which starts off shady but then opens into sun and great view of surrounding hills. Shady places to picnic.
Rte Lavina. Level and shady until the climb at the end. Great for summer.
To Chappelle St Croix from the Monastery. Beautiful views over the valley. Gentle, very sunny.
