  • 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.
