If you follow the direction of this loop, then you enter the nature reserve by a wide gravel road climb. Once you are completely on top of the mountain, the road changes to singletrack.

The view is very nice once you are on top.

There is a problem near the 'Col de la croix de Fabre'. It seems that someone bougth the land and has declared it ff limit to enter. I turned right and descended the mountain at the junction of the croix. I still had to pass 2 (easy) barriers on the road (blocking people to go up the mountain to the private land).

For the moment, I am not in the area to look for an alternative descend...
