Caireval : circuit VTT 1

Cycle Sport - Toute l'année

Fort de 150 hectares sur la commune de Rognes, le domaine de Caireval provient d'un legs établi au début du XXe siècle. Il atteste aujourd'hui de la qualité du patrimoine forestier départemental. Sous de fiers chênes et de grands pins dont les branches forment dans l'espace d'harmonieux dessins, les balades sont enchanteresses. Les clairières de cette version provençale de la forêt de Brocéliande s'ouvrent sur de magnifiques vues des Bouches-du-Rhône. Par temps clair, on va jusqu'à distinguer la mer. Circuit adapté handisport.
