The route from Rougon to Moustiers-Sainte-Marie by mountain bike
Using an alternative section of the GR4 hiking trail, the trail descends from Rougon to the west, cutting across the road below the village. The GR path leads on via Le Baou under the Bergerie de Faucon and Les Bourras to La Palud-sur-Verdon. A trail leads up Le Brusquet Ravine, goes around Les Barris summit and joins the road for Châteauneuf les Moustiers. A stretch of Roman road descends to the Pont de Saint Peire bridge; from here, climb to Les Chauvets and the D17 road, which you follow for 4km up to the Col des Abbes. From this pass, a path leads up into the forest to the high pastures of Le Montdenier. Be careful not to disturb any herds. A long descent, very pebbly on the first kilometre, leads via Les Claux and Le Riou Waterfall to cliffside Moustiers.
