The Sapin President is a lovely piece of flowing singletrack set in the dense forest above the Chaudron gorge. I wouldn't class this as intermediate trail but it's not very difficult either. Somewhere in between. There are a couple of tricky sections, off camber roots, tight hairpins and a few small drops. The trail itself is set on quite a steep gradient so be aware of drop on some sections. Be careful in the wet as there are a few root sections that demand a bit of respect! You can link the Sapin President with one of the many trails off Rochers De Naye and continue down to Montreux. The trail can often become victim to the elements so be careful of erosion and fallen trees. You come to a few junctions on the trail, It's best to remember to keep going right at these.
Take the cog railway to Haut-De-Caux from Montreux. 4.50CHF +3.00CHF for your bike. There's a descent sized car park if you wish to drive. If you took the train head down the road to the car park then head along route de Jaman (follow sign Col de Jaman/Les Gresalleys) for about 100-150m. On the left there's a walkers trail that sort of double backs but heads downhill. You'll see the sign for Sapin president. Head down the grass path for 500-750m. There will be a path and sign on your right (Sapin president/Velo VTT) It's quite stealth so go slow! Remember to keep going right at the junctions on the trail.
