Carte & Points d’intérêt

J'y vais


The trail takes you first over a succession of bumps to Sardières via Sollières and Termignon. From there you'll follow an exquisite singletrack balcony path from where you can enjoy the view of an authentic geological curiosity, the Sardières monolith. The return is mainly through a beautiful forest of mountain pines. There are 3 descent options to match your level of fitness and technique: 1 - a wide track that takes you to Bramans without too much technical difficulty. 2 - halfway down, a techncial variant of level red with a succession of hairpin bends, some of which are pretty tight. 3 - the most adventurous among you can take the steep black variant at the start of the descent which joins up with the red variant further down. This beautifully varied trail makes great MTB terrain. Make the most of it!

  • Passage délicat Technical difficulty: Apart from the technical variant this route does not present much difficulty. The variant on the other hand adds a little spice to the route with steep passages and tight hairpin bends. A treat for fans of this type of route! The descent after the Hameau du Châtel can present some difficulties over 50m. Physical difficulty: The climb between Sollières and Sardières is long and sometimes steep. But if you have the will, it will not be a problem.
