The tourist service at Céreste :

After a long but stunning climb up the thankfully now surfaced paths, the gradual ascent over the summit of the Grand Luberon is quieter and offers the perfect setting to admire the beautiful panoramas.

The main descent by what is known as ''Flat Combe'' is, in fact, far from flat and is a gift to cyclists especially when the trail is paved in dead leaves...

After returning across the plain and making you believe you've reached Céreste, the trail follows a step path back to the top of La Gardette, a price worth paying to enjoy the beautiful last descent, not tricky per se but enough to keep you on your toes!

Important: beware the livestock guardian dogs on the ridges and watch your speed on the descent – you might not be the only one on these trails!
