    You will discover the sandstones blockfields of the national forest of Fontainebleau, and relive the activity and the fascinating history of the carriers by observing the many vestiges still visible ( working face, shelters and exploitation's traces).

    Medium difficulty, you can follow two different loops: one of 3.7km of 2h30 (continue straight at the sign with arrows) or the entire loop of 6.5km of 5h (turn left at the sign with arrow).

    Follow the marking with yellow figures.
    Free parking at the carrefour du coq. From Fontainebleau follow the ONF sign in the direction of Etampes or Milly- la-Forêt.
