The first part of this stretch rises on the slopes of the Richelme Adrech before switching to the Pas d'Entrages to the eponymous village. The descent, technical, is carried out in front of an exceptional landscape and continues on a balcony to the Dourbes.

The suite allows the discovery of the Defense beech forest, the forest of Haute-Bleone and especially the black lands that make this territory's reputation for mountain biking (to do in dry weather!).

Archail and Draix offer the opportunity of a cool stop, necessary before climbing to the Col de la Cine (1505m), the highest point of this section.You will reach Tartonne and the valley of the Asse de Clumanc by a fairly technical descent.
