The Green Trail
Cycling, roller skating and walking on an old railway line.
In the heart of the countryside, in 2004 the Communauté de Communes du Castelbriantais (Community of Communes of Castelbriantais) converted an old 13 km railway line into a trail specially fitted out for cycling, roller skating and walking.
This is an invitation to relax and to get away from motorized traffic ! Country landscapes, forests, lakes, fields, meadows and typical villages are laid out before you along this path, ideal for all ages thanks to its gentle slopes. Just take a short cycle ride to discover the tranquillity of the countryside.
From Rougé :
from the car park of the old railway station in Rouge, join the Voie Verte and head in the direction of Châteaubriant. Follow the path all the way to the outskirts of Châteaubriant.
From Châteaubriant :
from the car park, follow the arrows to join the green trail. Follow the path in the direction of Rougé until you have gone through the town.
In July 2005, a new section was inaugurated. The green trail now reaches the borders of the department, beyond the Teillay Forest, and it promises to extend through Ille-et-Vilaine, within the Communauté de Communes of Moyenne-Vilaine and Semnon.
The Châteaubriant-Soudan-Villepot Green Trail.
A project to make a 13 km trail is being studied. Procedures for closing and decommissioning the road have started.
