Walk in the forest of Fontainebleau

A beautiful walk at the heart of the forest of Fontaibleau. The course weaves in the middle of the rocks in the gorges of Apremont. The departure is in the parking lot of the Apremont Platières.

The forest of Fontainebleau is one of the most important French woodlands. The forest covers an area of 25 000 ha, of which 21 600 ha are now administered by national forest.

The forest is huge and the hardest is certainly to find the starting point of the ride. After the trails are signposted and you just have to follow the signs on the path. The parking lot is located on a promontory and allows to have a lovely view of the forest.

The ride is easy with however some narrow passages in the middle of the rocks.
