Overview

A 17.4-km tour of the mid-mountain environment with 753m D +. The track is a serious commitment and crosses before the village of Roisan and then continues up an agricultural road to the hamlet of Méanaz.

Description

This is a loop through deciduous and coniferous trees. At Méanaz, you can see the votive chapel dedicated to Saint Bernard de Menton.

The singletrack descent begins by following an ancient path that was used to climb to cattle pastures by the few inhabitants who used the area for grazing, something that still happens today.

Overall, a fun track that's still challenging as it varies widely through the mountainous environment and wooded areas.

Giro di 17.4 km in ambiente di media montagna con 753m D+. Il tracciato è di serio impegno e attraversa prima l’abitato di Roisan e poi continuando a salire su strada agricola raggiunge la frazione di Meanaz,

Il tracciato ad anello attraversa boschi di latifoglie e conifere. In Loc. Meanaz si puo vedere la cappella votiva dedicata a Saint Bernard de Menton.

Il single trek di discesa comincia seguendo un antico sentiero utilizzato per la salita alla frazione degli abitanti che utilizzavano i pascoli della zona per l’allevamento bovino, cosa che accade ancora attualmente .

Il tracciato divertente ma comunque impegnativo è molto variabile in un ambiente montano in area boscata.
