This is basically a "natural" Flowtrail. Very easy but fast singletrack, fun to ride at all speed with great visibility and almost no difficulty. Check your speed at the intersections and always give way to the hikers!
At the end, you can join with the Corniche to get back to Ovronnaz (the trail is a bit hidden, follow the map).

Access Info
