    Far from the madding Mediterranean crowd, the GR 52A leads to the edges of the Mercantour National Park. This does not require the physical intensity of hiking in the high mountains; it will lead the hiker to the discovery of the warm and unknown high-country and at the same time give views over the alpine peaks and the discovery of an architectural and historic heritage.
