Section 5.2 Murs - Fontaine-de-Vaucluse / Vaucluse long distance mountain bike trail

Distance: 30 km - Climb: 646m - Descent: 1,056m Parking: behind Fontaine-de-Vaucluse town hall (paying car park). You can park your vehicle here safely for one or several days, depending on how long you're spending on the Vaucluse long distance mountain bike trail

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.
