The tourist service at Viens :

A short mountain bike loop with no technical difficulty, starting in the hilltop village of Viens. A sequence of tracks switching from undergrowth to fields, dotted with beautiful views of the Luberon in the south, Mont-de-Vaucluse in the north and Montagne de Lure in the east.

On the way back, keep your eyes peeled for the dalle calcaire further along the trail (8.9 km), a slab of limestone whose surface is covered in over 200 footprints of mammals that inhabited the region 30 million years ago!

Important:
• Beware the livestock guardian dogs in the vicinity of a nearby farm (1.1 km).
• The footprint-covered limestone is a protected site and extremely fragile: bikes are strictly prohibited on the surface.
