Very easy
  • This a back / forth ride with a gradual uphill portion at the geginning (135m height difference) and a good downhill slope at the end. Its advantage is that it gives you a bird's eye view of the superb Guil gorges, while travelling a road that has very few cars on it.
    Distance : 5km out/ 5 km back

You'll be able to stop whenever you like to take some nice photos without the stress of traffic. The last part of the route descends to the Maison du Roy dam. The return journey takes the same route.
