Spectacular scenery on this relaxing 2 hour return hike. Slightly more challenging is the optional climb up the rocks for stunning views of the Aguilles de Bavella at the end.

The Aiguilles de Bavella (I Forchi di Baveddain Corsican) are rocky spikes that dominate the hill of the same name, meaning 'needles of Bavella'. At 1218 m, the hill connects the Alta Rocca (fr) to the east coast of Corsica. This massif is smaller yet much more popular than the "aiguilles de Popolasca". The site is characterized by jagged peaks, large rock walls and pine trees twisted by the wind. Located in the centre of the "Massif de Bavella", are the seven "tours d'Asinau," or towers of Asinau, the actual "needles". en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aiguilles_de_Bavella
