Mont Sec and the Madeleine pass - remember to look up to admire the beautiful panorama over the Taillefer massif, the Vercors cliffs and, later the Luitel peatlands. After 12 km and an elevation gain of 1,200 metres, your return descent is via the Prémol forest and the village of Montachaffrey. In the valley, an easy, obstacle-free path takes you across the fields and back to Vizille.

The calculation of the difficulty of each course takes into account the length, the positive vertical drop, the greatest continuous positive or negative vertical drop as well as the technicality of the terrain.
