Head for the rocks of Servières for a sporting route, classified black, a circuit more physically demanding than technical.

This circuit is part of the FFVélo Haute-Corrèze mountain bike base, the largest mountain biking area in France with 1000 km of marked circuits. There is a shortcut, the "Bois de Tempêtier" circuit, which is classified as difficult. This relatively easy going sports circuit includes a more technical passage at Rochers Servières. Be careful, many steep paths including the final section.

The pond of Condeau

The circuit runs along the edge of a private pond at Condeau (do not enter the property). If the Plateau de Millevaches is often spoken of as France's water tower because of the many rivers that flow from it, it is also rich in a multitude of ponds. All artificial, they have been created by man, who has most often dammed a stream at the end of a wetland, mainly for fishing.
