Fire danger closes the forest in the summer.

Need to Know

From the pass, you can drop down the Val de Lègue trail to the east to visit the Villa Gallo Romaine de Saint-Pierre de Vence ruins, and fields that produce crazy numbers of red poppies each May. You can also use the Hike-a-Bike to Les Opies Summit to visit the old fire lookout tower and some great panoramic views.

Description

Begin riding west at the pass at Latitude/Longitude: 43.7146 N / 4.98252 E.

At the bottom of the doubletrack the route joins a dirt road network that will take you into the village of Aureille within about a mile.
