Furfande on mountain bike
Very nice tour in a loop with a long ascent on a forest track and a long technical descent which starts from the alpine meadows to finish in undergrowth.
View from the Col de Furfande (mountain pass)
Furfande mountain chalets
The larch forest
Exit the parking lot, turn left and quickly to the right at a fountain. Cross the bridge, turn left and then right before the second bridge.
1 - Ride up the stream of the Champ la Maison on a good forest track. Continue on the main track to the Col de Furfande.
2 - Pass the collar and go down by a smooth single track which connects to the refuge de Furfande. At the refuge, take the left trail, easy to ride but a little rocky until the Col de la Lauze.
3 - After the mountain pass, turn left on a more technical trail with a few aerial parts and steps. Beware of the cow pens, they may exit from a corner and not be seen until the last minute. Keep on the left and reach the chalets of Queyron. Go between the chalets and reach a track.
4 - Turn right and follow the trail that leads to a picnic area.
5 - At the sign Clôt la Chalp, turn left towards Arvieux. Cross an enclosed plot and enter the forest. Take a smooth path mostly descending 6 - When you reach the forest track, turn left and follow the direction of Fontouse. Leave the track a little after the stream of Fontouse and take the path on the right. Continue until a bridge, cross it and turn right to find Arvieux.
