Le Chemin des Frênettes à VTT
Pays de Caux
A short loop around Saint-Pierre-Benouville, a former village of blacksmiths in the Pays de Caux.
Are you a forest enthusiast? Then set off on a 7 km loop around Saint-Pierre-Bénouville, an old blacksmith village in the Pays de Caux. On the programme: relaxation and pleasure guaranteed between sunken paths and undergrowth
Put on your helmet and let's go for a tour outside the urban world, for an hour! After a short passage through the streets of Saint-Pierre-Bénouville, you are surrounded by fields. Very quickly, you change terrain while enjoying the confined atmosphere of the forest but also a pleasant wooded smell. On clear days, the light piercing through the leaves will only embellish your walk.
On the way the curious will find information panels about hares, which are numerous in the nearby fields. On the edge of the forest, relaxation is at the rendezvous with the passage of the Saâne. Take the time to appreciate the melodious flow of this watercourse, and the quietness of the forest.
If you wish to take a break during the walk, do not hesitate to push the door of the museum installed in a former forge of the 20th century. You will discover a multitude of tools, witnesses of the activity of the blacksmiths who gave rhythm to the life of the town. In addition, the entrance is free, so why deprive yourself?
Our little tip to enjoy a good time without a hitch: remember to check the weather, because most of the route is in the forest and when the ground is wet, the terrain can be slippery.
