The Arcelle Enduro mountain trail is mostly a track and singletrack itinerary. This beautiful balcony path, with views of the Vanoise glaciers, the Dent Parrachée and Bessans Valley, won't fail to impress!
Carte & Points d’intérêt
Despite the name (which means "Art of the Saddle"), you won't be sitting much on this trail. You'll need to stand and find the right saddle contact for the fabulous descent. From Mont Cenis Pass or the Val Cenis lifts, you'll ride across the mountain on a singletrack balcony path for about 6 km. You can rest the brakes on a few sections before plunging down to the valley, but the steeper parts are not particularly technical. This descent alternates between Alpine pasture and forest. Besides some lovely paths it offers a bird's-eye view over the valley. So why the name "Art de la Selle"? This is in fact a play on words, as the itinerary takes you close to the hamlet of Arcelle.
Departs from: Mont Cenis Pass or Val Cenis Lanslevillard.
From 15/06 to 01/10.
Subject to favorable snow and weather conditions.
