This is the seventh and last part of the TransVerdon Great Crossing for mtb, created with the help of the french cycling federation.

Esparron de Verdon is well known for its nautical center and more generally for its lakeside activities. Here is a very nice arrival village to relax and cool off! The portion in the wood of the Séouve is very pleasant because rolling and far from being rectilinear which avoids the possible monotony of a large plateau ...

Here is the ultimate stretch of this TransVerdon. After the mountain, the perched trails of the Verdon, here is a nice step to the Provencal atmosphere. To be savored before the arrival in Gréoux-les-Bains. But for those mountain bikers that tickle again, it is possible to extend to Manosque (see option 2).

La portion dans le bois de la Séouve est très agréable car roulant et loin d’être rectiligne ce qui évite la monotonie possible d’un grand plateau…

Voici l’ultime tronçon de cette TransVerdon. Après la montagne, les sentiers perchés du Verdon, voici une jolie étape à l’ambiance provençale. A savourer avant l’arrivée à Gréoux-les-Bains. Mais pour ceux que le VTT chatouillerait encore, il est possible de prolonger jusqu’à Manosque (voir option 2).
