Céreste - Crête du Grand Luberon et Combe Platte

Mountain biking at Céreste
26.7 km
Loop
Mountain biking
3h 45min
Very difficult
  • • Starting point : La Romane car park located near the chapel at the exit of Céreste towards Manosque.

  • After a long beautiful climb on paths that are thankfully cobblestoned in the end, the gradual ascent on the crests of the Grand Luberon is more peaceful and allows you to make the most of several beautiful views. The main descent via ''Combe Platte'' is far from being flat and turns out to be a technical treat, especially when the path is covered with fallen leaves... After going back through the plain, when you think you have arrived in Céreste , the circuit goes up to the top of the hill...

After going back through the plain, when you think you have arrived in Céreste , the circuit goes up to the top of the hill of La Gardette on a last big slope ; a price to pay for a beautiful last descent that is somewhat tricky but very playful !

    Warning :
    • Presence of herd protection dogs on the ridges.
    • Control your speed well going downhill; you are not alone on these trails!
