3 GREEN WAYS

- The green road or the "Chemin des Abbayes"
(a 6.2-mile walk without any change in level that crosses each one of our abbeys)

It is a strong link between the 3 abbeys, the old railway has become, between Etival-Clairefontaine and Senones, a path to practice by foot, bike or roller safely. On the trail, 10 signs has been installed to tell you the history of these spots: for sure the abbeys but also the industrial and princely past of the region, or the savoir-faire that have made the wealth of this little Vosges territory. The particularity of this green road is that it goes accross abbeys. Thus, during your walk you will discover renovations of the cloister and Senones's library, Moyenmoutier's new gardens and the old fortifications of Etival's abbey.


- The green road of the Vallée de la Meurthe:
perfect and safe walk for families on the former railway or along the Meurthe river (6.2 mi). Linking the itineraries of marked hikes, you will be able to realize easily small walks on the loop around each village. About ten accesses from the RD 415. 


- The green road in the Donon mountains:
a spectacular and natural spot particularly majestuous, circled by forests. There are also two important lakes: the Lac de Pierre-Percée and the Lac de la Plaine. It represents 17.4mi with 6.8mi of green road.
