About

Departing from Val-Cenis (73500)
Average length : 01h00
Total elevation gain : 160m
Vertical drop : 850m
Signed walking trail

The itinerary begins with a bit of plain pedaling from Mont Cenis Pass on a track which, fortunately, offers magnficent views! You can make it more interesting by taking the red variant. If, on the other hand, you depart from Termignon ski lifts, then no effort is required at all. At the Replat des Canons (when you reach the chairlift) you'll begin on a highly amusing section, before a gentle ride to Termignon along an easy track. Here again, you can opt for the red variant if you're still not satisfied!
The name comes from a local speciality - have you tried Termignon blue cheese?

Departs from: Mont Cenis Pass, Val Cenis Lanslevillard, or Val Cenis Termignon.
