Hike Pointe des 3 Communes

Au départ de la station de Camp d'Argent, parking supérieur (1800 m).

Last Chance Hotel - this fabulous location is soon to be destined to snow chains and rackets. It’s a relatively short, facile walk (8kms - 3hrs) well worth the journey time approx , 1 heure 30 min 58,7 km from Nice on D2566,

The massive Authion is a set of vertices close to the Southern Alps , combined with the Alps of Nice, located in the department of Alpes- Maritimes near the Col de Tende ( Franco-Italian
border).

It overlooks the nearby valleys and CAIROS Bévéra and is located on the edge of Mercantour National Park , north -east of Col de Turini .This massif , which rises to 2,080 m at Pointe des Trois Commons was considered a strategic position with its appearance of natural fortress as controlling valleys Vésubie and Roya , the latter being borrowed by the road linking Nice Piedmont ( to Turin) .

      This is a voluntary group and at times the 'day job' of the organiser/s gets in the way and posts have been known to be very last min - meaning Thursday or Friday of the same week.

    I really have problems "seeing" the hikes! My sister Isabel really wishes to join, but just like me"hasn't figured out" WHERE to see the hike section on meet-up! I also can't find the SUGGESTED tap... Sorry to bother... Will the hike on the 1st of December take place and if yes, where and what time? Kindest, Irene
