This trail is featured on the Flaine/Les Carroz paper VTT (mountain bike) trail map (unfortunately no online version is available). The maps cost €4 from the tourist information centre at Flaine. It largely follows a similar route to the Cascades ski run in the winter.

You start at the top of the DMC lift in Flaine, initially traversing across the ridge in the direction of Sixt. You then begin a gradual descent through a sheepfold, continuing down into the woods and along the route of a fast-flowing river with various waterfall features along the way. You end up in the pretty little town of Sixt Fer à Cheval, which is just a short ride from Samoëns.

Highlights from the description on the map (translated into English):

- Discover the Mont Blanc chain (watch out for punctures on the plateau)
- Nature reserve of Sixt Fer à Cheval
- Technical passage to the sheepfold of the Combe des Foges
- Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval and its picturesque village

Access Info

Take the DMC lift from the base of Flaine.
