Course Ile de Loisirs - Bois de Senon

This route will start at the edge of the forest: “Bois d’Arcy”, and the lake of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. You will then follow the canal opening onto the “rigole des Clayes”.

Mostly, you will stroll through pedestrian and bicycle routes following the lake and canal. You will be able to enjoy the outdoors of the woods and the scenic neighborhood of “La Croix Saint Bonnet”.

Enjoy with us these large protected natural escapes within our cities, while following the footsteps of Louis XIV and Vauban. Black pines and Chestnut trees are growing for over three hundred years, standing as the living memories of the epic work put forth in the old days. This massive undertaking, to modernize the old hunting grounds of the royal palace was not only for aesthetics though. The goal was to build a complex hydraulic system to provide the Castle the necessary water for both the water show and the hydration of the gardens.

You will also have the opportunity to discover with us all of the family friendly activities on the “l’Île de Loisirs” the second most popular site of the region.
