All this complemented by panoramic views, a breath of fresh air and interpretation panels en route. What’s not to like!

Variation (Green/easy): option to include a 10-minute return trip to the Portalas belvedere at the south side of the forest (popular with walkers so pay attention!).

Variation (Red/difficult): longer and more arduous: from Bonnieux follow trail no. 35 as far as the ''Les Crets'' panel and then join the Route des Crêtes and the start of trail no. 49, then on the way back descend from the “La Tour Philippe” panel back on to the trail no. 35.

• Beware the livestock guardian dogs on the mountain ridges in spring.
• Watch your speed on the descent – you might not be the only one on the trail!

A short yet oh-so-magical mountain bike loop! A gradual ascent on a surfaced track, an easy ride fit for beginners along forest paths surrounded by ancient cedars and a descent following narrow trails that are fun to ride on.
