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!
From Millau (30 km drive) or from Albi (78 km drive), take the D999 road towards Saint-Affrique. Once in the town centre, head to the gymnasium and the swimming pool to find the carpark set at the starting point of the green lane
