The Rock of Dabo

MOUNTAIN BIKING AROUND THE ROCK OF DABO

Cycle in a protected mountainside setting, whatever the weather.

Lovers of forested mountainside MTB tails in search of a natural destination can enjoy one of the densest networks of well-maintained waymarked trails in France, at any time of year. Pedal without limits all year round on the low mountain “Blue Line” cycle route in the Vosges.

Slam on the breaks as you reach the summit of the Rock of Dabo, and take a minute to contemplate the stunning scenery of the Lorrain plateau with your children. And to catch your breath. With a remarkable wealth of MTB circuits surrounded by nature, there’s something for every ability. From the Rock of Sickert, a stunning pink sandstone outcrop standing 508 m high, the cycle route crosses and follows the beautiful river Zorn for several kilometres. Its downhill sections will thrill seasoned mountain bikers.

Or why not try the Sandplatz circuit with its majestic scenery and wooded peaks. Don’t be surprised when Steinerne Maennele - an almost human rock formation shaped by erosion - emerges from the woods like a statue. Get in the saddle and you will be rewarded with a wide range of circuits, taking in mountain passes, the Vosges forest, cave dwellings and climbing spots. Fun rides to make memories the whole family will talk about for years to come!
