Nice and long trail. Lots of hairpin turns. Terrain at the top if rocky and smoother at the bottom
Climb via the ski slopes of Le Tour


Watch out : Moutain biking is forbidden in the natural reserve which is not far. The trail shown here is OK but you will see some other that might lead into that reserve. Always pack a map. In the summer there might a lot of pedestrians so be polite and careful.

Access Info

You can go to the village of Montroc by train with your bike and then go to the village of Le Tour (5 min). Climb the ski slope to the top of the lift called Charamillon, then go to some little houses and take the climbing trail. Follow the sign saying "Le Tour"
