The route

Leaving Pontailler-sur-Saône, the route keeps beside the Saône’s towpath, but note that locals do use this track. There is a stretch on a county road between Vielverge and Flammerans (D116, then D20D) before you rejoin the Saône. Plus there’s a pebbly portion before you reach the river. The last part of this stage up to Auxonne is safe, taking you along a towpath.
