Cauterets Valley

CAUTERETS VALLEY
Difficulty - Blue
Distance - 37km
Elevation Gain - 490m

The route is shown starting at Cauterets, but you can just as easily start in Argeles Gazost. It's a one way ride up and down the Cauterets Valley, and if you've never been here before or driven the route you'll see it's quite spectacular. It's a steep sided valley, but the road to Cauterets is actually not too steep, so a good 1st mountain ride for beginners.

 

However, the roads can get busy during the summer months with lots of cars going to Cauterets and Pont d'Espagne. Best to go in the early morning to avoid the traffic.
