ROUTE
From Huez, ride up the 4WD track towards the Col de Sarenne, alongside the Sarenne Gorge, to the
restaurant at La Combe Haute.
Once there, turn around and take the fork immediately to the left, signposted Village d’Huez par le chemin des pêcheurs.
This «Fishermen’s path» winds its way between the 4WD track and the Sarenne river.
The less experienced may find some sections a little difficult, but the low gradient slope makes it easy to stop and put your feet down if necessary. In any case, this fun path provides MTB thrills, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced mountain biker.
In three places, the path goes back up the 4WD track.
In each case, keep an eye open down to the left to ensure you get back on the Chemin des pêcheurs.
