Lovely climb with a great view as your reward!

Couldn't think of a better way to spend the day in Southern France. It is just a short hike, not too demanding if you're fit and healthy (1 hour-ish up, 45 minutes-ish down). View... read more

Couldn't think of a better way to spend the day in Southern France. It is just a short hike, not too demanding if you're fit and healthy (1 hour-ish up, 45 minutes-ish down). View at the top superb, 5/5.

Great walking trail on the pic st loupe:) Difficult to reach with the bus, we hitchhiked to the foot of the mountain. Great view on top of it!

It's a great, not very long, but toughish climb up there, so were your best walking shoes. The view from up top is lovely and makes it all worth while!

If you are in the area and want to have a nice couple of hours outside, going up the Pic St-Loup is worth the trip. Althought not really high, the pic provides with an awesome view of the coast line to the south and the cevennes to the north. The climb via the south is pretty easy, whereas the north... More

Although it was cloudy and we couldn't see anything from the top - it was still a lot of fun climbing up there and totally worth it.

The whole area around St-Loup is heavenly. Vineyards and mountains. This place gets even better at sundown.

I went with my two daughters, aged 10 and 12, along with a friend and her two children of the same ages. I had no idea what kind of climb it would be but my climbing companion had said it was not overly difficult. It turned out to be a marginally good workout. It is not a super steep climb,... More

We are in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France. Our intention was to hit some wineries in the area. Oops, it's Bastille Day and the wineries are closed. Let's climb Pic St-Loup. It took five of us to climb up between 1.5 to 2.5 hours, but it was well worth it for the view! Spectacular! Magnifique! But afterward? Man! Sure wish... More

This Pic is visible from most of the region and is set within a series of limestone outcrops. We trekked up a well-marked path (mostly part of GR6) from the St Matthieu side and took about 90 minutes to reach the top in 30c temperatures (take water!). We were regularly passed by orienteers. Easy to find, simple parking near to... More
