Physical & technical

From the seaside to the wide gravel tracks of the Estérel Forest, this traffic-free itinerary will allow you to fully enjoy a beautiful day on your gravel bike.

The paths are all very smooth, with some slight inclines. There are very few singletracks and “technical” sections, making this itinerary a good challenge for gravel beginners.

At the midway point, you will enjoy an incredible view of the sea, which will accompany you for the rest of the ascent on a gravel road. Then, you will take wide dirt tracks to return to Fréjus.

Note: Make sure to carry enough food and water with you as there are no villages nearby. You also have the option to start this route from Roquebrune-sur-Argens, which will add about twenty kilometers to your itinerary.
