Alternating greenways, towpaths and short passages over low-traffic departmental roads. Note a 300 m passage on a paved sector near Rupt-sur-Saône. Short climbs to the St-Albin tunnel and Ray-sur-Saône. A great family experience, apart from the service to Port-sur-Saône.
Currently marked Charles le Téméraire, the name L'Echappée Bleue and his signature La Moselle-Saône à vélo should soon appear.
Warning: on sections closed to traffic, there may be service vehicles or fishing vehicles.
EuroVelo 6 link in Vesoul
At the confluence with the Durgeon, the Green Road leads you to Vesoul and then to EuroVelo 6 to enable you to reach Roulans on the banks of the Doubs. The Greenway stops at Loulans-Verchamp and then attacks the hills of the Doubs department. Be careful, these 22 kilometres on small roads are steep and require good physical condition.
