The route from Moustiers-Sainte-Marie to Quinson by mountain bike
The route leads via a minor road, then a track beside the Petit Lac and via La Maïre, to the beach at Sainte-Croix Lake. The climb to the Valensole Plateau is steep and pebbly, but the rest of the way to Sainte-Croix makes for easy riding. Then rejoin the GR4 hiking trail, descending to the little Baie de Repentance. Next, head due west into woods, towards Montpezat and its lakes. A tarmacked road leads to St-Laurent-du-Verdon, then a track takes you up the Ravin des Caillades, up to the D11 road, or opt to go via the minor Route de la Vudèle and the Source de Vaudoudurde.
