Lucky for me, I registered on the OVS and joined someone to do this Pic St-Loup hiking. I wanted very much to do this after I checked “things to do in Montpellier”. It took a while to drive there. With absolutely no idea about this hike, I had checked a lot on the internet and had got even more confused... More

Pic St Loup is at 20 kms north from Montpellier. The path is easy but made with lot of stone and without tree on the side. It is impossible to find some shadow until the top of the mountain. In summer time it must be done early the morning.

Just outside Montpellier, great views to the south as you ascend and then - suddenly - to the north as well. Not easy, but not tough. We found a nice place for a glass of wine nearby afterwards. Perfect!

I was in Villeneuve Les Maguelone (a village 12kms from Montpellier) and wanted to go to Pic St-Loup. Luckily, I found a friend who was going there with his parents and I joined him. It was a 40 minute drive from Montpellier (Place La Comedie) to Pic St-Loup. Then, it took us an hour and a half to hike up.... More

It is beautiful but you need to have a car to stroll around because it is simply too troublesome to do it by public transportation.

More beautiful than expected. Moderate hike with a great view to top it all off. Easy parking near the small village of Cazevieille. Go visit Domain Morties afterward for the local wine and drive around St-Mathieu-de-Treviers for a lunch or dinner.

Being one of the highest points in the region, form Pic St loup you can see everything to the sea! The walk is not too steep, not too long (about 1h), and it is relatively easy to access from the city

Yes, it is one of the things to "do" but once you've done it, you'll understand why. It is a bit steep in places, but slow and steady will get there. [We're 58 and 61] There is a profile of the climb on the sign at the start of the climb at the Cazavielle carpark to let you know how... More

The path is very steep in places with a rough surface with loose rocks in places so wear good sturdy shoes. Well worth the effort.
