With an altitude of 300 metres, the Glacis Trois Frères trail offers a magnificent view of Victoria, the Ste Anne Marine Park and other easterly islands in the archipelago, including Praslin and La Digue on clear days. It is one of the most popular hikes on Mahé, though it does not include the summit, for safety reasons.
