You alternate between minor roads and wide forest paths. Note the steep little slope after Pontpoint Church to reach the forest. From Le Moncel Royal Abbey at Pont-Sainte-Maxence, the way is shared with the Avenue Verte London-Paris cycle route up to Senlis. Then there is specific signposting in place for the EV3 up to Ver-sur-Launette. South of Senlis, at time of writing a deviation had been put in place to avoid an army firing range – follow the signposts.
Surfacing in parts smooth, in parts rough: compacted tracks and asphalt. There are a few stretches on rough farm tracks.
