New Year's Walk, Januray 6, 2016
Hike for January 6 - Forêt de Fontainebleau
The hike will start from Bois le Roi and will end in Fontainebleau-Avon. It should be about 17k.
We will walk through the forest to Rocher St Germain, part of Rochers Cassepot and Rochers du Mont Ussy, and other smaller rock formations near Fontainebleau.
There will be many ups and downs (estimated cumulative elevation gain: 300m), boulders and narrow passages that may not agree with bad knees.
Wear good footwear, some rain is in the forecast. Lunch will be around 1pm, bring snacks.
All hikers need personal accident and liability insurance.
-Take train to Montargis at 9.19 from Gare de Lyon, arriving at Bois le Roi at 9.50, Zone 5 (the train stops at Melun. Departure should be from Hall 1 -lettered platforms- but check on arrival). I will meet you at Gare de Lyon, we will sit in the last car.
-Return trains from Fontainebleau-Avon every half hour: 16.00 (arr:16.41) - 16:30 (arr:17.15)
There is a brasserie next to the train station.
If you do not have a "Passe Navigo", or benefit from any discounted fares, buy a "Mobilis 5 zones" (16.60€)
See you on Wednesday!
ps: Sorry, but I don't have a cell phone.
