Origine du nom : ce sentier a été baptisé du fait que la longue descente finale requiert de grandes manœuvres pour arriver tout en bas, avec d’énormes virages profilés.

Aménagé à l’été 2017, le sentier Les Grandes Manœuvres est classé avancé, mais il n’est pas si techniquement difficile comparativement, par exemple, à La Rebelle (9). Son niveau avancé est surtout dû à la longue descente qui vient clore le sentier, mais le cycliste moins expérimenté pourra néanmoins effectuer cette descente, peu technique, en allant à son propre rythme.

Ce sentier débute au croisement du sentier L’Érablière, sur le haut plateau près de la réserve écologique. S’ensuit une enfilade de montées, de descentes et de virages, suivis de la looooooonnnnngue descente finale, avec ses nombreux virages profilés (berm turns).

Le sentier Les Grandes Manœuvres permet d’atteindre le sentier La Rebelle (9) et La Médiévale (7).



--------------------------------------------------------------English version---------------------------------------------------------------------
Origin of the name: This trail was baptised Les Grandes Manoeuvres (The Great Manoeuvres) because of the long downhill section with huge berms at the end of the trail.

Built during the summer of 2017, Les Grandes Manoeuvres is rated difficult (black diamond), but it is not as technically difficult as, let's say, La Rebelle (9). In the case of Les Grandes Manoeuvres, the rating is due to the long downhill that ends the trail. Beginners with a little riding experience should nevertheless be able to ride this trail without problems, going at a slower speed in the downhill section.

The trail begins at the crossing with L'Erabliere (6), on a plateau near the ecological reserve. It starts with a series of short downhill and uphill sections, some wooden features, and ends with a looooooong final descent with numerous berms.

Les Grandes Manoeuvres leads to the following trails: La Medievale (7) and La Rebelle (9).
