Saint-Affricain Green Lane/St-Jean-d'Alcapiès
When a railway is turned into a green lane! The railway connecting Saint-Affrique to Saint-Jean d’Alcapiès was operational until the early 1990’s, and is nowadays used as a family green lane, accessible to all. Don’t wait to experience an amazing circuit peppered with viaducts, bridges and abutments settled in a landscape of valleys and forests!
The Green Lane starts along the Boulevard towards the 12 étoiles gymnasium. Walk to your right around the gymnasium and carry on passing close to the Vailhauzy castle (private) up to Saint-Jean-d'Alcapiès. A total of 8 kilometre posts are set all along the route.
