This stretch, which isn’t too difficult, is nevertheless a highlight of the Long Distance Mountain Bike Trail, featuring passages through the famous ochre massifs of the Luberon.
You now enter the ochre massif with its shimmering colours.The earthy and sandy single-track trails give way to rocky roads that lead you to Rustrel. You then cross the Colorado Provençal to climb a series of tracks leading to beautiful ridge paths. The rest of the route takes you to the banks of the Calavon River, then, through an old railway tunnel, to Céreste. You continue your assault on the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence through the peaks of Montjustin and climb up to the gentle slopes of the Grand Luberon.
