Description

This trail drops through the forest from the top of the Prarion lift to Bionnay. It is mostly rooty singletrack but the last few kilometers are on doubletrack. Some of the junctions/turns are small and easy to miss, so keep an eye on your GPS device or MTB Project mobile app to make sure you hit the right line.

If you start from St Gervais, you can drop to the train station in Le Fayet, take the train to Les Houches, and then do this ride, finishing again in St Gervais.
