Le Mont De Couple.

The route starts through the village of Hervelinghen and continues through open countryside to the top of Mont De Couple at an altitude of 163 meters. At the top there is an orientation table and you have a beautiful view of the Bay of Wissant and the limestone cliffs of Cap Blanc-Nez and Cap Gris-Nez. The Mont De Couple nature reserve covers 14 hectares and is home to a rare fauna and flora. With one of the highest peaks on the coast, Mont De Couple inevitably served as a German observation post during World War II. The remains of the bunkers and underground galleries are still visible. They are now a home for bats. Furthermore, the route follows a part of the GR128, after which you can enjoy the rolling landscape on unpaved paths and traffic-calmed roads.
