High Point

16 km xc route, park on the Talloire road, ride on the road to the take off point for the parapenting.
Great single track descent and under the cliffs ( if your scared of height's maybe give it a miss)

Chemin XC, parking sur le bord de la route, montée sur la route au décollage des parapentes, un beau insgletrack en descente et sous les falaises (si vous avez peur du vide, il vaut mieux éviter !)

Trail Cliff trail
I could not find the access to the trail. When returning from “false teeth” I realized that someone put a big sign “ propriete prive. Defense d’entree.” This is where the trail starts, I believe the sign only applies to the truck lot at this trail fork. What an a**!

Trail Cliff trail
Nice trail. Take care of the hikers because it’s a popular hiking trail. Ascending is quite tricky: start of with a climb on gravel, later there are some challenging hike-your-bike sections/climbing. Make sure to be comfortable carrying your bike up technical walking sections! Very nice view on the lake and cliffs once on top. Descend is technical but very feasible.
