15 - Cross-country - Blue - Le Monolithe

at Aussois

  • Despite being listed as physically challenging, this itinerary is suitable for intermediate mountain bikers. The paths present no real technical difficulty and you can stop at the monolith to get your breath back.

    This is a very accessible blue itinerary mainly following forest paths. The first track leads to the monolith and includes a slightly technical uphill section where you may have to walk for a few metres. But you'll have fun on the superb trail...

    The monolith is a fairly straight, vertical structure of cargneule rock rising to 93 metres above the ground. The dolomitic limestone formation is dense and hard enough to have resisted the erosion that has affected the rest of the site, cleaning it of the other, less robust rock that once surrounded the monolith.

    Departs from: Plan de la Croix or Val Cenis Sardières, at the junction on the road leading to the Sardières monolith.
