Le Mont Rôti
Vallée de la Bresle
Come and recharge your batteries in the heart of the Forest of Eu and the typical rolling landscapes of the Bresle Valley! This 12 km route is ideal for a walk with your family or friends.
This walk starts in the charming village of Rieux, close to Blangy-sur-Bresle, in the church square.
You will first walk along the church before picking up a path through fields that will take you to the heart of the Forest of Eu, one of the biggest forests in Seine-Maritime!
Once in the forest, look around and listen carefully… the place is teeming with life! This large forest is home to numerous migratory birds as well as deer, hares and other animals. It is quite common to see some crossing your path!
As you continue, you will pass the signpost called Poteau du Mont-Madame. Erected in 1901, it is one of the 28 signposts in the forest! These were set up at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century by the Count of Aumale, the Count of Paris and the Count Gaston d’Orléans, who successively owned the forest. They are unique in France and are made of cast iron thus weighing several tons each! They are named after sites, foresters and members of the Orléans Family.
After a few kilometres in the shade of beech trees, you will get out of the forest for one last climb. Undoubtedly one of the most difficult, it will offer you a stunning view over the Bresle Valley! A pleasant descent will then take you back to your starting point. You can be proud of yourself!
If you enjoyed this challenging walk, you can extend it with the "Rieuse" Trail in the middle of the countryside, villages and the forest!
