Description

This trail both starts and ends at the GRR3 Tour du Cirque de Mafate and GRR2 at the southeastern and southwestern edges of Aurure. Look for the white-blazed trail to cross a small creek near a small ascent made of stairs on the eastern edge (Ilet Sud), or near a picnic table and wooden hiker statue on the western end (Bord Bazar).

From the eastern end, the trail starts off somewhat flat and passes by a little farm. The trail will be clear even if the grass around it is overgrown a bit. After the farm, the trail will enter forest and climb up a set of switchbacks. Periodically, you'll be treated to awesome views to the south towards Piton des Neiges and Grand Benare. The picnic table at the western edge is a nice spot for a break with great views of Piton Cabris and to the south.
