Walk in the forest of Montmorency

A nice walk around the ponds in the forest of Montmorency - 1 hour from the center of Paris.

Montmorency forest(45 minutes from Paris) is not really located near the Montmorency city, but a little more to the North, it's not very easy to access this forest because there is no major roads to get there, you have to drive on small roads. You can easily park your car because there is a large car park just next to the ponds. The walk is very easy and there is no difficulty. It's a good idea for a walk on Sunday afternoon.

Castle of the Chasse
The origins of the castle of hunting are very old. It has long served as hunting lodge for local warlords. You can’t visit the castle except exceptional opening. The roofs of the towers no longer exist and have been replaced by these curious sloping roofs.
