SENTIER de l'IMBUT (Imbut Trail) :

The Walking

The Track of Imbut is one of the nicest walkings of the Throats of Verdon, but perhaps also the most technical and the most difficult. It represents a course about 6 - 8 kilometres, with about 340 metres of difference in altitude in descent and in 400 metres in rise. This walking will last from 4 to 6 hours, according to chosen options (Imbut, Baou Béni).

This track is to avoid the winter, because of glaze and when it rains, some passages that can turn out to be very slippery.
The way starts with the Left Bank of Verdon, at the edge of D71, just before the Hotel des Cavaliers, on the village of Aiguines. In nice season, if they leave in time, they will have the chance to be possible park its vehicle on the platform located just after the hotel, next to the First-aid post of the Firemen of the department of the Var (red Container). If the men are present (in general, from June 15th till September 15th), they will be very good advisers and be able to explain you course. Indeed, these sappers rescuers go through the track every day to help careless or not experienced hikers. It isn't rare to cross persons put on by light sandals, or even by "flip-flops". As for the Track Martel, the dogs are forbidden of course. Also, this walking is disadvised to the children underneath 10 years. Some passages are acrobatic and risky.
