Roquebrune-sur-Argens: Rivers after Rainfall

The town of Roquebrune-sur-Argens, next to Fréjus in South-Eastern France, counts a dozen of excellent hiking trails. I personally enjoy hiking around the Roc and on the wooded trails of the "25 Ponts" (see Hike #10 in our hiking guide entitled "26 Gorgeous Hikes on the Western Côte d'Azur").

I enjoy it so much that I was planning to take my hiking group there on Monday for a healthy trot across the 25 bridges, down the ravine of the Petite Maurette and over on the back-side to face the Rocher de Roquebrune rock on our way back.

The problem is, it rained a fair amount these last couple of days. And this hike crosses a lovely little stream called la Petite Maurette that swells with water running down from the surrounding hills. Today, we simply can't cross it safely on foot.

So I'll re-route my group to a hike on higher ground nearby. But if you're visiting, keep in mind that the hikes close to streams such as this one aren't ideal after rainfall, even if if the day is sunny, warm, splendid like today!
