Great wilderness walks by train or bus?

A friend of mine is headed to Cannes soon, and wants to get away from crowds on a great five or six-hour walk. Trees are required. Villages are optional. Where can she get to by bus or train? The Iles Lerins look good initially, but I'm worried they're just mobbed with tourists, being a primary tourist attraction. Is there somewhere northwest which can actually be reached by transit? What about walks out of Grasse, Le Trayas, or Vence?

Isle St Honorat is the quieter of the two isles de Lerins and never gets mobbed.

However, your friend may also be interested in the Croix des Gardes parc which overlooks Cannes and features a mimosa tree forest. It begins 1km from the centre.

There's some info here and also on another walk along the canal du Siagne


Hope this helps
