    Description

    Take advantage of the postbus at Martigny station and ride it up to Les Chesaux. Here you’ll follow the mountain road, then the gravel road up to Alp L’Arpille. Theoretically, it would now be possible to start heading back down, but, you’re going to want to put your bike on your shoulder and carry it up Mont de l’Arpille in order to enjoy the views which are truly phenomenal. Very much worth the extra climb. The single-track descent down to the small pass at L’Arpille is very difficult. Less experienced mountain bikers might be better stowing their bike at the foot and hiking to the summit on foot. The following single-trail descent  on the north side to La Crettaz is more doable by everyone, although it is sometimes rather steep. The serpentine path snakes its way through a kind of fairy-tale forest. From La Crettaz to Gueuroz, you’ll have to descend the 400 metres by highway, due to a lack of any other options. The hiking trail parallel to the road in the valley floor cannot be ridden. In Gueuroz, you’ll finish your tour with another single trail, albeit a difficult one. An old and rough path meanders through the steep and rocky terrain and ends in Vernayaz. The single trails parallel to the main road will take you back to Martigny.
