Commercy / Saint-Mihiel
Don't forget to stop at the truffle and truffle-farming centre in Boncourt-sur-Meuse before continuing on to Saint-Mihiel, a Renaissance town and birthplace of sculptor Ligier Richier, born around 1500. Mécrin, Brasseitte and Han-sur-Meuse can be found in the Lorraine regional nature park, which offers a wide variety of natural environments including forests, 200 forest or meadow ponds and 340 pools. All perfect for the outstanding fauna and flora.

The route

After departing Commercy, take the green route along the Meuse. Next, turn right towards Pont-sur-Meuse. Between Brasseitte and Ailly, the route continues along an agricultural road. After Ailly-sur-Meuse, there's a short steep hill. It’s the only way to avoid a very busy road. At the top of this hill you'll find Tranchée de la Soif  (the Trench of Thirst) a historical site from the First World War.

Key sites

- The church of Saint-Etienne with the entombment of Ligier Richier

- Tranchée de la Soif.
