Overview

A tour of 22.7 km in medium and high mountain environments with 953 m D +. This is the most challenging track with uphill on dirt roads and asphalt portions until the Praperriat County, passing through the Blavy Fraction.

Description

At the pasture of Praperriat, you can enjoy a splendid view over the surrounding peaks; Grand Combin, Mont Velan, Grades Jorasses, Montebianco, Grivola and Mount Emilius that will keep you company. The first part of the climb is the same as Méanaz, then it divides to climb higher up on the mountain.

The well-deserved downhill from Praperriat is of great beauty for both the environment and the diversity of features on this beautiful singletrack.

The varied track requires excellent bike-handling skills and commitment. Caution is advised and it is recommended to scope the trail from above in order to fully "enjoy" the track. Stop in loc Racha for an excellent panoramic viewpoint.

Beware as the track is shared with other users.
