Along the towpath

Follow the towpath paralleling the right bank of the Loing. Upon reaching the centre of the village of Episy, cross the bridge located opposite the Auberge d’Episy inn. At the inn roundabout, turn right to once again pedal along the towpath, now on the left bank of the canal. Upon leaving the village, keep an eye peeled for the grey herons of the Episy Marsh, a listed nature reserve popular among both birds and birdwatchers! Continue along the towpath. Passing through the waterside villages, admire the lovely residences and edifices overlooking the canal, such as the town hall of Montcourt-Fromonville. At the entrance to Nemours, cross the bridge to reach the opposite bank near the Nemours canal lock.

At the lock, follow Rue Thiers to visit the town centre. Be sure to explore the castle-museum, Nemours’ emblematic 12th-century edifice grandly situated in the old medieval district. The town hall and 16th-century “Hôtel-Dieu” (former hospital) are also well worth the detour. To leave Nemours, you’ll skirt the town centre by first returning to the canal lock. Cross the lock to reach Rue de l’Ecluse on the right bank, then follow Rue du Port au Sablé. Cross the bridge at Rue de Paris to change banks and reach Quai du Canal on the left bank. Continue first along Cours Balzac, then Quai des Mariniers.

Leaving Nemours at the end of Quai des Mariniers, cross the road (remaining on the same bank) to rejoin the towpath. A shady landscaped promenade will lead you through Saint-Pierre-les-Nemours, between the “tame canal” and the “wild river”.

The Loing Canal

Continue riding along the left bank of the Loing Canal, via this occasionally grassy dirt path. Tributary to the Seine River, the Loing flows for 166 km. But don’t worry, today you’ll only pedal around 30. Along the way, you’re sure to frighten a few mallards into flight. In Bagneaux-sur-Loing, remain on this same bank. On the opposite side of the canal, you can see the old glass factories for which this waterside village has been famous since the 18th century. When you reach the Madeleine-sur-Loing lock, cross over to change banks. Continue pedaling along the right bank to arrive at Souppes-sur-Loing.

After passing the silos and warehouses of the Souppes-sur-Loing port, cross the Loing Canal via the bridge to the left. Head towards the centre of Souppes-sur-Loing, along the way passing over three bridges straddling the “wild Loing”. After the third and last bridge, turn right onto Rue Voltaire. At the end of this road, bear left in front of the church onto Rue de la République.
