Circuit VTT n°10 - Honneur aux senteurs de Lure
A slight descent start between the pastures, followed by a climb in undergrowth on a small quiet road, then a return to the balcony on a track at the foot of the massif...
An immersion in the land of scents... Summer and autumn, the first hundred meters, descending in the middle of the pastures, are a treat for the senses: lavender, thyme and fennel stir up the smell while the villages of Montlaux (the ruins of the old and the present) fill the view.
At the hamlet of Gipières, it is time to gradually go up in the shade of the oaks that line the small asphalt road taken. It allows access to the wide flat track that brings back to Cruis.
The return is then made on a balcony at the foot of Lure, between the parks of the herds and the first coniferous of the mountain.
To see: hamlet of Gipières, herds (sheep, lambs, goats) of Lure, chapel Notre-Dame de Lumière.
Important: during the summer period, from 15 June to 15 September access to the forest ranges of the Alpes de Haute-Provence is regulated, please contact the referring authorities.
