A nice trail around the Hills of Orges. The trail is marked with arrows, but I changed the start: instead of climbing on the road, I redirected the trail to a steep climb on a singletrack. (or a nice downhill if you ride the track in reverse). If you don't want to do this climb, then just follow the 'VTT' signs from the village.

Most of the track is singletrack, on top of the second hill, you pass a small area where wild pigs are active. Watch out for there and your ass Smile .

When you are in the village, don't forget to visit the 'moulin de la fleuristerie', where they still produce artifical flowers with an ancient water mill and factory. (http://www.artamin.fr/)

Access Info

Start from the water mill and on the second road to the right, you see the 'VTT' sign
