Loop
Mountain biking

Very easy
  • Starting point : The cedars Forest of the Lesser Luberon car Park situated on the Luberon crest, acces from Bonnieux on the D36

  • A small but magical tour! A gradual ascent, an easy immersion on forest paths between old cedars and a descending return on narrow and fun trails. All enhanced with panoramic views, priceless summer freshness and interpretive postsigns along the way... What a delight !

    Warning:
    • Presence of herd protection dogs on the ridges in the spring.
    • Control your speed going downhill; you are not alone on these trails!
    Variant (Green / easy): possibility of a 10 minutes round trip to the Portalas...
