|Sisley, Moret sur Loing|
Daniel Perot will lead us on a special Fourth of July Stars and Stripes hike near Fontainebleau and the Loing River. We will start from Moret sur Loing (station Moret Veneux les Sablons) and visit the medieval and historical city. Great! The hike will continue into the natural area of the plain of Sorques followed by a bucolic stroll, with probably a flock of dragonflies, along the Loing (river) which will led us to Montigny sur Loing and our train station.
Getting there: Gare de Lyon, SNCF train leaves 9.19, direction Montargis, arriving at Moret les Sablons, zone 5, at 10.06. We will travel in the next to last car going out of the Gare de Lyon. (It seems you don't appeciate the last car.)
Give yourself plenty of time at the Gare de Lyon. Remember that there are two sets of quais at the Gare de Lyon, color-coded blue and yellow, or 1 and 2. Check the departure panels to find out where our train departs.
Return: from Montigny, also in zone 5. Trains leave about every hour, 15.45,16.45, etc.
This easy and splendid walk of 14km takes about 3½ or 4 hours plus the visit of Morêt.
Bring water, some lunch and hiking equipment, sporting red, white and blue. Brownies and carrot cake are welcome. Saint Moret cheese nicely replaces Philadelphia cream cheese! I'm looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday!
