The route that has been laid out here is very tranquil; you will pass the foot of the fortified town of Langres to get to Flagey by passing through the village of Saint-Geosmes.
In 1883, the Langres/Poinson-Beneuvre railway track was opened to the public. Since 1935, the Compagnie de lEst (Company of the East) no longer wanted to use this line that saw quite a low volume of traffic, however, it was still of interest to the army. The line has therefore been kept for strategic reasons. In 1955, the travel service, which had become almost useless, was abandoned. On 1st December 1963, the goods service road was also removed. The line was taken out of service and then dismantled. This dismantling of 26000 routes was completed on 17th April 1967.
It was in 1999 that the first studies and ground surveys came about after having been carried out by the Pays de Langres Tourist Office. With the agreement of the towns in question, in the end it was the Syndicat Mixte d'Aménagement Touristique des Lacs et du Pays de Langres (Joint Association of Tourist Development of the Pays de Langres and the Lakes) who would carry out the transformation of this old railway line rote into a tranquil path.
This creation is marvellous for walkers and sportspeople who love nature. If you love hiking on foot, bike or roller skate, you will appreciate the family walks that you can enjoy without worrying about the children's safety.
The Voie Verte (Green Route), a bicycle path away from the road, invites you for adventure and discovery of the Langres plateau through many cycle tourism walks.
There are unlimited options that are fun for all the family all year round.
