Tête de la Maye
Saint-Christophe-en-Oisans - La Bérarde


Description: Tête de la Maye

Starting point: Hamlet of la Bérarde
Height gain: 808 m
Total duration: 2 1/2 hours
Distance: 2.8 km
Level: Difficult

At the entrance to La Bérarde, take the path which starts before the bridge. It winds its way up through pine and birch trees to the junction with the path to Les Etançons. Take the left hand fork. The path then becomes quite tricky, going round rocky outcrops and crossing rock slabs fitted with bars and cables. The climb is physical and exposed.

The summit has a panoramic map table enabling you to identify the legendary surrounding mountains.

Important: this path is well equiped with cables but particularly exposed and not suitable for people afraid of heights or in and after wet weather, as the rock slab remains wet and slippery.

Opening periods

From 01/06 to 31/10.

Subject to favorable weather.
