Starting from Milly-la-Forêt, enjoy a hike to discover an amazing natural area in the Fontainebleau forest massif.

This 13-kilometre loop requires an intermediate level of walking skill due to the ground and the few climbs, during which you will see some of the most important sites of Milly-la-Forêt.

On your way out, stop by the famous village hall. Dating from the 15th century, the imposing wooden structure has been classified as a Historic Monument since 1923. A little further on, stroll next to the Maison Jean Cocteau, which is open to visitors. The multi-talented artist fell in love with Milly at first sight and decided to settle there at the end of the 1940s.

Continue your walk to the astonishing Cyclop, a monumental work of art designed by Jean Tinguely which required 350 tonnes of steel to build.
The route then takes you on a walk through the countryside, past mills and along sandy paths, until you reach a flat, raised plain at the foot of a hill. Admire the site's unique vegetation, consisting mainly of heather varieties.

Back in Milly-la-Forêt, pass by the Ferme du Coquibus, a mountain hut open to hikers, climbers and families visiting the Fontainebleau forest.
