  • Nanterre / Le Pecq

    Nanterre / Le Pecq [13.8 km]

    From Le Pecq, opposite St-Germain-en-Laye on the Seine, a greenway follows the north bank of the river round towards Chatou.

Cross the graceful footbridge over Nanterre's dock.

  • Le Pecq / Conflans

    Le Pecq / Conflans [16.8 km]

    The proud historic boatmen's town of Conflans-Ste-Honorine stands at the confluence of the Oise River and the Seine. Take care because of the uneven road surface around here. A footbridge carries you across the Seine into the Forest of St-Germain-en-Laye, cutting out a meander in the river, taking you across to the waterside town of Maisons-Laffitte. The Seine then becomes your companion heading south.

  • Forges-les-Eaux / Neufchâtel-en-Bray

    Forges-les-Eaux / Neufchâtel-en-Bray [18.6 km]

    A superb stretch of the Avenue Verte leads you down to Forges-les-Eaux. The Epte and Andelle Rivers, pretty tributaries of the mighty Seine, spring up here. Forges-les-Eaux, as its name implies, made its name in the past both as a town producing metal-work and as a thermal resort, thanks to its iron-rich springs.

    Neufchâtel-en-Bray / St-Vaast d'Equiqueville [16.2 km]

    In this stage, you leave the Pays de Dieppe for the Pays de Bray. The picturesque countryside here is scattered with farms producing fine milk and fruit products which have long supplied not just Normandy's markets, but also those of Paris. In fact, such fertile parts of Normandy are now promoting themselves under the amusing nickname of 'Gourmandie'.

    Within view of the imposing, ruined Château d'Arques on its hill, you'll find a multitude of nature activities to pursue. The Avenue Verte route continues south via a series of very large lakes, created by quarrying to provide for ships' ballast; now these lakes are much appreciated by line fishermen as well as by birds.
