To the top and down you'll want water and a picnic. The climb is not for Grandma. Try to visit some Vinyards after because this is also serious wine country.

I didn't went up to the top of the mountain since it was over 30 degrees and a walk to the foot of the mountain was even 7km, but the area around there is pretty amazing. Unfortunately, it's quite hard to get there via public transport which made the trip a little more annoying than necessary.

We did this activity in the moring in family. My youngest child (2.5 years old) could not do it all, but my elder one (4.5 years old) did it all... although I had to carry him on the way back. We used the east side track wich was recommended as the easiest (1.5 hours track for an adult) The end... More

Most of the reviews mention the fact how hard it is to reach the Pic. And although it is the tallest thing in the whole area, it is. Public transport is a no no. You need a car, really. And even then, road signs to the Pic are leading nowhere. So here is the definitive tip to get there:drive to... More

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.

Great trip on a free day when staying in Montpellier Make sure you bring water, sun block and good hiking shoes or at least robust trainers with good footing Beautiful views of the surrounding area from every direction Lots of wild flowers and wildlife Just keep an eye on the yellow markers for the route as we took a wrong...
