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. From the same starting point, this tour is a shortcut to the "La Vallée de la Diège" and "La Cime des Bois" routes. This circuit owes its name to the rock that is to be found after Le Chassaing at km 18. Ideal for an exploratory excursion before undertaking more significant distances.
