Very nice enduro tour. Start in the town of Arêches. The beginning is in a road, some steap parts but it's all on the bike and then you arrived at the lac of saint guerin. After that you take a gravel road and you finish the climb with some hiking to reach le "Passage de Miraillet". After that you start the downhill on a ridge with a stunning view on the lac de roselend and the mont blanc. The trail is up and down and after you reach the classic "roche pastire' singletrack. Awesome ride to the col de pré.
Then you have a little uphill and then you start the downhill "la vachette". Awesome singletrack with some fast parts, tights turns Just a lovely enduro tour with french alps ride !! just ride it !!

Magnifique tour d'enduro au départ d'Arêches. Le départ se fait une sur une route en goudron jusqu'au lac de Saint Guerin, quelques parties raides mais tout ce réalise sur le vélo. En suite il faut prendre un chemin 4x4 et pour finir il faudra pousser/porter le vélo pour atteindre le 'Passage de Miraillet". Par la suite c'est le début de la descente, sur un sentier de crête avec vue sur le lac de roseland ainsi que le mont blanc ! En suite il faut prendre le classique singletrack de "la roche pastire" jusqu'au col du pré. Magnifique singletrack. Aprés le col du pré il y a une légére remontée puis la descente "la vachette". Des belles épingles, de la vitesses, des racines , une magnifique descente compléte. Bref un tour d'enduro à faire et à refaire avec une ambiance alpine et des singlestracks de folies ! Enjoy !
