31,49 km cycling route from Frasne to Nans-sous-Sainte-Anne

After Frasne, the roads are quiet that lead you to Chapelle-d'Huin. The way is lined by fields in which distinctive Montbéliarde red-pied cows graze. Once through the woods of Chapelle-d’Huin, La P’tite GTJ guides you on to Levier. Dismount here to visit… the Musée du Cheval Comtois, devoted to these cart-horses, long a distinctive part of the old Franche-Comté Region’s identity. Originally bred to serve in battle, these steeds became widely used for heavy work, such as clearing woods, ploughing fields, caring for vineyards and taking away rubbish. They can still be seen performing some of these tasks today, although they’re more appreciated now for leisure activities, such as horse-drawn outings, carriage competitions and shows. The cycle route continues via Crouzet-Migette, the Lison River your companion up to Nans-sous-Sainte-Anne, where the river springs out of the earth as a waterfall, well worth seeing!

The Route

For one 500m stretch, you’ll need to ride along a gravel path to get around the train station at Frasne (there is the choice of passing under the station if you’re willing to negotiate a few steps). 2km of forest track between Levier and Gevresin. Much of this stage is along roads shared with motorized but very light traffic
