June 3 hike
Hike for June 3 - Champagne-sur-Seine - Vulaines-sur-Seine/Samoreau - Fontainebleau
The hike will start in Champagne-sur-Seine (right bank) and will end at Fontainebleau-Avon train station. 17k, leave or take.
We will walk through the forest to Vulaines-sur-Seine/Samoreau. After lunch there will be a bail-out point as we will be near the Vulaines-sur-Seine/
Samoreau train station (9k). However, getting on the train at this station may be tricky as the step (footboard) can be very high and very narrow and you have to stand on it to push the door handle up, no problem if several people bail out and can help each other. Also in Vulaines-sur-Seine, a museum dedicated to French poet Stéphane Mallarmé. http://www.musee-mallarme.fr/ root
Then we will cross the river to the forest.
There will be a few ups and downs, a short steep ascent at the very start, with steps.
If mosquitoes like you, come prepared, there may be a few in the morning. Wear good footwear, poles are a good idea. Carry enough water. Lunch should be around 12:15/30pm.
All hikers need personal accident and liability insurance.
