From Col de la Forclaz, enjoy the view then drop into the forest. The first section is steep and rocky with a few tight switchbacks. It then opens up into some great single track through the forest with steep drops off to the side. The middle section is super-fast with a nice trail and trees whizzing by on each side (hence the Star Wars name). The last few hundred meters is rocky and a bit more technical.

Access Info

Track drops just to the right of the short road up to L'Edelweiss.

 The beginning may look daunting but after the first section the trail opens up to a flowy singletrack

 Where do you park for this trail network, and how do you get back up the top of this trail, please?

 Some people say the French trail rating system is harder than the English, will this be suitable for a capable 14 year old and his 50 year old dad?
