Vaucluse long distance mountain bike trail Section 5.2 Murs - Fontaine-de-Vaucluse
From Murs, you speed along to the very beautiful Combe de Véroncle, on a technical trail.
You come out at the famous village of Gordes and its dry-stone architecture. After Gordes, the route brings you into the Sénancole valley, in the middle of a stunning mineral landscape. Then a long uphill stretch lined with boxwood through the Grande Combe valley leads you to the Rocher des Trois Luisants (alt. 661m). There follows a long descent alternating between tracks and trails in a rough landscape of limestone and stones, as far as Saumane-de-Vaucluse and its castle. One last effort will bring you to the Fontaine de Vaucluse, for a final thrilling downhill stretch, with your sights set on the meandering river Sorgue and its source.
