After crossing the Sorgue with its mills, you climb up to hilly limestone areas, passing along the ‘Mur de la peste’. You then cross the plain towards Coustellet and take the Euro-Véloroute n°8. Via fun single-track trails, you join the banks of the Canal de Carpentras to tackle the southern slopes of the Petit Luberon before reaching Mérindol.
