Hikes for Sept 7

Longer hike

 Parmain / Nesles

We will walk in a loop from Parmain, 23k. 
It is possible to bail out and walk back to the station but you need to bring a map (IGN  2313 OT) 
Varied landscape and terrain. There will be some slight elevation, one short steep slope with steps; estimated cumulative elevation gain: 400m.
We will have to walk at a good pace. Wear g ood footwear. Bring a picnic lunch, snacks and enough water (at least 1.5L). It will be hot.
You must be in good form, particularly if you are not used to walking in hot weather.

All hikers need personal accident and liability insurance.


-Take train H to Persan Beaumont at 8.30 from Gare du Nordget off at l’Isle Adam-Parmain, arriving at 9.19.                     
Zone 5 (regular return fare, 14€).  I will meet you at Gare du Nord, we will sit at the rear end (or a little bit farther down if the train is full).
If you are not familiar with Gare du Nord, arrive early enough to make your way through the maze there.

-Return trains from l’Isle Adam-Parmain : direct trains at 16.09 (arr:16.59); 16:39 (arr:17.29); 17:11 (arr: 17.55); 
17.41  (arr: 18.23). There are other frequent trains that are not direct (1h 05 min).

See you on Wednesday! 


Shorter hike                        

Dear walkers,

As a short option for next Wednesday I propose a leisure walk of 9 km through the parks of Plessis-Robinson and Fontenay-aux-Roses. 
It will be mostly on the hilly ground with one short steep climb but on easy footpaths. We'll be rewarded by a panoramic view on these two towns.

To get there:

Take the RER B Direction ROBINSON 
From CHATELET LES HALLES at 9:32, arrival ROBINSON at 9:58 
The same train from DENFERT ROCHEREAU at 9:40 
2.75 € one way Zones 1 - 3
At the Gare de Robinson walk to the head of the train then to the right, take the exit avenue Jules Guesde then the stairs leading to the street. I will be there.

Return from FONTENAY AUX ROSES, RER B zone 3, trains to Paris every 15 min.

If you walk 1.5 km more, return is from Robinson, on the same line. You can also walk 3 km more along Coulée Verte to Metro station Châtillon-Montrouge.

Bring your picnic lunch, a lot of water and don't forget your sticks.
A mercredi,

Dominique R.
