Gorges de Franchard
77300 Fontainebleau Driving directions
The Green Guide

Useful information


This relatively easy round-trip is ideal to explore the forest's landscapes: sandy soil, splendid boulders, alleys of pines, Atlas cedars, Vancouver fir trees and horse chestnut trees. Don't expect to see a river running in the Franchard gorges, as there is no water here. Make your way across the flat rocks to the Franchard hermitage and enjoy the sweeping view over the entire gorges and the Bière landscape, dotted with dark Coquibus woodland.
