Trail in the Quarries of Beaulieu
 
 
The Beaulieu forest is full of outcrops
 

The Beaulieu quarries is a forest near the eponymous village, full of rocky outcrops made of a good type of limestone, proper to construction.
Despite the current factory is still active, quarrying has been an activity since very long ago, in different places of the forests, and the step-shaped rocks in many places attest from it.
Nature, mainly pine forest and Mediterranean bush took their rights back since ages too, but many tiny trails allow to penetrate it in every possible way.
This network is a little paradise for local mountain bikers, who enjoy dealing with the gentle obstacles formed by rocks of all shapes, and the smooth curves of the paths.
I had once more the pleasure of riding the Titus carbon that day, from my less lucky father, unable to ride due to an injury in the arm...
