L'Esperou / Le Vigan The Grande Traversée du Massif Central by mountain bike
Elevation of the stage
Leaving L’Espérou, the GTMC à VTT takes you along a road looking down on the village. Next, the route makes you join a GR® hiking track up to the Col du Minier, crossing L’Aigoual Forest along gentle slopes. From the Col du Minier, there’s a good stretch of descent to relish, but with a few technically challenging portions, taking you down to the Salagosse Valley. Then follow a singletrack beside a stream, leading to the heights above the village of Mars. Tackle the climb to the picturesque village of Esparon on its rocky outcrop via a path with some steep and technically challenging parts. A pretty singletrack then leads down the mountain side to Le Vigan, offering lovely views on the valley below.
