The route through Mulhouse is still being laid out, so take care on the link through town. From the station, signposts lead you to the park by the Ill River, near a campsite; then a pedestrian bridge takes you across the river to join the canal. The cycle path continues beside the canal.

Note the alternative cycling circuits signposted « Sundgau à vélo », one leading to the charming town of Altkirch.
