Le Paty - Uchaux UCHAUX

Provence cycling

"Le Paty" is like an invitation to contemplate Mont Ventoux from its very peak. The presence of a ford and picnic areas make this outing lots of fun and pleasant for the younger crowd.

Itinerary: from the cementery, take the road in the direction of the Galle, just after the town entrance sign take the first street on the right toward the church. Then go on your left and pass in front of the tennis courts up to a road cordoned off by a cable. Here turn right and follow a trail which goes over a ford and along a stream which is often dry. This leads to a paved road at the following crossroads go right and, some 600 meters farther see a trail on the left that goes into the woods by the only stone pillar. Red and yellow (GRP) markings. (1: 73 m - 2 km) Take this trail which leads to a ford. Cross the feord and find a road that you take on the left, it goes in front of a picnic area and ends up at a crossroads. Take the trail on the right which goes up - continue following the markings and continue this trail to its end, at a ridge. (2: 160 m – 6 km) Switch over to the other slope and fin a paved road which you follow to the right. Continue following this road until it intersects with the D74. Turn on the right and then quickly on the left (discreet yellow and red marking on a a sign) to then take a small road; (3: 97 m – 10 km) Continue on this path, then on a road, going strait. Reach the D11, turn right to come back to the starting point. Circuit created by CG84 and Vtopo - from Vtopo Vaucluse http://vtopo.fr/vtt-vaucluse.html
