This tour can be made in both directions, from Arreau but also possibly from Jézeau, as well as the car park below the Bordères Lake. There are 1330 meters of vertical climbing and as much downhill for a distance of 32 km.
The climb from Jézeau to the top of the ridge is steady but long, for those who like fast descents better choose the other sense that makes you cycle up the road to the car park under the Bordères Lake (longer but more gentle).
The circuit takes beautiful forest tracks through and there are no technical difficulties... From time to time we get stunning views into the valley.
A confession : I have not ridden it, the GPS track on a bike was recorded by my father. But I have walked this trail countless times and have many photos... to come... Winter is made for that :)
From the A64 motorway linking Toulouse to Bayonne, exit at Lannemezan and take the road into the Vallée d'Aure (direction of Arreau).
Depending on where you start, you can park in Bareilles or Jézeau.
