The forest is quite large and offers plenty of opportunity to follow paths that will take you away from people and the city into a natural environment. Plus the forest is famous, so how can you go to Fontainebleau without sampling the Forest?

Ran several times in the forest. Started from Hotel Ermitage. Got lost! Managed to find my way. Names of paths are on trees at crossroads. Also try the 2 km sporting track. It’s a good challenge.

It might not have the dramatic backdrops of the Buttermilks or the sense of adventure that accompanies a trip to Rocklands, but Font will always be synonymous with bouldering, and its ease of access from just about anywhere in Europe means that it will always...More

This might be my favorite place to boulder. It is a rock climbers playground. Try to make and effort to visit this place at least once in your climbing career, it is worth the trip. So many easy, moderates and hard stuff all in one...More

Saturday morning run to clear the head, see the forest, and jump about on the boulders. Really nice forest, thick with trees, well-kept paths. There are supposedly boars and deer there, but we saw none. It's really picturesque. Some of the paths are quite hilly,...More

Sneakers would be fine, the forest is quite flat and the terrain is sandy, not rocky or difficult to walk on. It's walkable in flip flops!
