Description

Great route on a high track following the west side of Lac de Castillon. Follow VTT signs #7. Recommended here as an A-B so organise a shuttle.

Once you are up to Couchons it mainly decends for a stunning 10 kms to Cherion.

Varied trails, single double, easy and technical descents.

The last steep loose boulder run from Col de la Baume is great but can easily be avoided down the road for those who dont want their teeth rattled loose!

Can be done as a big loop via Demandolx and Angles and is signed as such (7) but that makes a long day and the west side is definately better if you are short of time.
