Mountain biking route 4: Les Villas Doria
Difficult level, technical knowledge required for downhill. This route will enthral fans of beautiful downhill rides. Not suitable in wet weather as the technical sections will become risky.
Follow circuit n°3 at the beginning. You are riding in the forest in single track (narrow path), which does not create any major issue except for some tight hairpin turns. Be ready for 30 min of ascent on the Col de l'Epine road, halfway to the ruins of Villas Doria take a rather large path on the right to go down towards the lake. You will start with a winding and narrow path, then it will be larger and pretty technical till Nances cemetery.
Itinerary classified as red (even by considering the distance) because it is rather made for technical riders. Circuit to avoid in case of bad weather because the technical parts will be rather risky.
