Gorges de la Jonte

Distance: 57 km.    Difficulty: Challenging   Type: Paved Roads    Starting Point:Florac

Description: This spectacular ride starts in pretty Florac, rises high to the 1000 metre Col de Perjuret, followed by a fun descent to Meyruis, a bustling town full of restaurants, a 3-star campground, and a good base for exploring the Causse Noir to the south and Causse Méjean to the north. From here you descend into the Gorges de la Jonte, one of the most extraordinarily beautiful places ever to be seen, with vultures in the skies overhead. What could be better?

Directions: Couldn’t be simpler. From Florac, follow the Tarnon and Frassinet Rivers on the D907 (which becomes the D996) to Meyruis. Continue on the D996 to Peyreleau and Le Rozier.
