Sometimes set up to be fun or old, the route is a playground! Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned endurist! The departure from the Mont Cenis pass or from the Val Cenis ski lifts offers a plunging view of the valley and the surrounding mountains. The trail is easy and winds through an alpine pasture, the continuation in the forest will require a little more attention. You will certainly be more inclined to focus on the pleasure of driving!
