<From Bois-le-Roi station, you head towards the Fontainebleau forest along Chemin des Coureurs (GR1). For 6 km, will discover made of oak and pine trees as well characteristic rocks this place before arriving at Tour Denecourt.

It is here that you can climb to the top (you are 136m above sea level) and enjoy a 360° view of the forest. Magnificent ! The édifice was built by Claude-François Denecourt (who landscaped the forêt of Fontainebleau) in 1851, and then restored à several times.

While no river crosses the Fontainebleau forest, you will pass respectively:

  • La Fontaine du Touring Club de France, created in 1901;
  • La Fontaine Désirée, discovered in 1837 then improved by Denecute;nagacute;e in 1852;
  • La Fontaine Dorly, also created in 1852 by Denecourt;
  • The Isabelle Fountain, created by Denecourt in 1866 and restored by Colinet in 1893.
  • The details of these 4 fountains are however very variable.

Finally, take a break at the Roche Eponge, a curiosity in the Fontainebleau forest, which owes its name to an aspect resulting from the erosion.
