  • At each new ballad, new landscapes. Meet in the nature after qq hundreds of meters. The forest is full of different landscapes, d different atmospheres: the trails towards the Racecourse are to remember!

  • Pleasant walk not too far from Paris. A lot of world on weekends, but it's still a moment of relaxation. For sports, there are climbing on the spot.

  • Very beautiful forest, even after 3 years of hiking every week, there is still to discover unknown places.

  • Accessible from Paris using the Navigo Pass (for locals). This forest is incredible for its size, its diversity, wildlife, its blocks used for bouldering). Enjoy it better by bike without forgetting water supplies!
  • One of my most favourite places in the world. Love the bouldering here, but just awesome to hang out in the huuuuge forest. Incredible really. It's so peaceful. Go visit Milly-la-foret for a cool market and hang out under the trees in the beach sand with boulders all afternoon after that.
  • For those who love bouldering, just bring your shoes, some food and a crash pad. Some parts accessible by the transilien R (plus walking)
  • Is a very beautiful forest. The best in the region. I am almost every weekend inside to ride my mtb.
  • Great along the river Seine.
