7a (red) – Dré Val/Type: Enduro
Departure point: Plagne Bellecôte
Arrival point: Versants d’Aime leisure centre
One of the most beautiful enduro routes in the area, offering a dizzying descent from la Plagne into the valley below.
The route sets off from Plagne Bellecôte along a trail that starts on a hairpin bend below the parking area. After following the forest trail for a few hundred meters, you bear left onto a single track that overlooks the hamlets of Roche du Haut et Plangagnant. You then join the road for a short while before plunging back down onto the trail that takes you through the forest and past the hamlets of Ceriseray and Chatelard. The route goes as far as Sangot and ends by the waters of the Versants d’Aime leisure centre, from where you can catch the "Plagn Access Bus" back to la Plagne.
The route can be ridden as a continuation of the "Dré Mount" route (7), thus constituting an enduro downhill of more than a 1,600-metre vertical drop from the summit of Roche Mio.
Bus Plagn'access provides a regular service between the valley and the resort.
Like all physical sporting activities, mountain biking can be dangerous, so take care!
