Hiking in the Valley of Arbonne in the forest of Fontainebleau

A very easy hike in the forest of Fontainebleau.

The walk starts at the parking lot of the Canche aux Merciers. Look at the map to find the starting point, it is always difficult to navigate on the roads of the forest of Fontainebleau. The start of the hike is well signposted and the signage is very good all the way. Note that the departure is located next to famous climbing rocks, you can try to climb if you are interested. Beware, the site is well-known, the parking lot is quickly full in summer...
