Description

The trails here are mostly forest roads, so there are few technical aspects of this ride. Just because the trails are mostly smooth doesn't mean that this route isn't a challenge. The ascent to Col du Marchairuz is longer, and a steady grade makes this a leg burner.

By following this route, you'll ride over both dirt roads as well as small sections of paved road, so be prepared for both and watch for car traffic.
