This Trail starts at the top of the Forcla Pass and dives toward a lake which is lying in a bathtub of rocks.
After some very technical stuff between rocks and high mountain pastures, you'll ride through a lunar landscape full of grey rocks and watched by an impressive peak called "Tita Naire".
Then you cross a difficult area which is composed of rocks eroded by the previous glacier and by the rain and you end up in front of the shelter Dorbon.
The downhill continues on a rapid gravel path that leads you to the bed of the river named "Dorbonne".
The last part of this trail is much easier and ends just above the beautiful lake of Derborence.

       None on Pinkbike.
      As i live nearby, i can tell you this trail is seriously not fun to ride. It's a great way to link Derborence to Ovronnaz/Rambert and the view is stellar. However there are so many rocks all around, you have to hike your bike a lot. More of an adventure than anything else.
