Don't know who edited this trail. It's actually the bottom part of one and the top part of another

The first part (strava segment La Petite Vierge 2) is a fairly straightforward shaped trail with optional jumps and drops with some natural rock gardens. It's fully rollable for an intermediate rider and alone is a good trail to session with kids because of the easy shuttle option back up the paved road to the carpark (1km back up with a little under 100m climbing)

At the bottom of that trail, follow the road and a little under 100 metres take a sharp right hand turn into the tight singletrack leading to the freeride spot : les ruffes.
The ruffes are beautifull to see (it's like being on mars) but it's very hard to progress with all montain/enduro bikes, you better not adventure there without a guide knowing the right paths.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

       hell! this is our trail, been adding some more features therel.
      this is actually not salagou but no that far, and for those into big natural drops, and hucking, is a must.
      for those more on the enduro side, lots of singletrack around, if you ever get to travel there feel free to message me for more info ...
