Forest sights in Fontainebleau
- Sort by:
This 20,000-hectare Forêt de Fontainebleau, which begins 500m south of the chateau and surrounds the town, is one of the prettiest woods in the region. The many trails - including parts of the GR1 and GR11 - are excellent for jogging, walking, cycling, horse riding and climbing. The area is covered by IGN's 1:25,000-scale Forêt de Fontainebleau map. The tourist office sells the Guide des Sentiers de Promenades dans le Massif Forestier de Fontainebleau, whose maps and text (in French) cover almost 20 walks in the forest, as well as the comprehensive La Forêt de Fontainebleau, published by the Office National des Forêts, with almost three dozen walks.
