đŸšČ Stage description and details:

You hardly need to pedal much on leaving Mortain to reach the greenway here, which proves very wide and makes for easy riding. It leads you past several former train stations as well as past restored level-crossing guards’ houses. 

Take care on the D977 road, which serves as the link to reach Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouët.

⭐ Don’t miss:

  • Mortain petite et grande cascade, two waterfalls well worth the detour. Go to the spot where the Cance River drops c.20m, before joining the SĂ©lune River a few kilometres further on.
  • Climb to the little chapel of Saint-Michel de Mortain to admire the pretty views and even get a glimpse of the Mont Saint-Michel in the distance on clear days. To reach the chapel, cycle along Rue du Rocher and Rue de la Petite Chapelle, then follow the signs. You can reach the summit by bike, but the last few metres are steep, so dismount if necessary. Enjoy the rewarding view just a bit higher up.
  • How cider products and calvados liqueur are made can be discovered in a fun manner at the Domaine du Coquerel, an estate that has produced AOC calvados since 1937, and which is located directly along the greenway at Milly. 
  • Saint-Hilaire-du-HarcouĂ«t: for its cathedral-sized church and Le PrieurĂ© lakes.

🍮 Food and drink en route:

  • Mortain: with many shops and a market on Saturday mornings on Place des Arcades.
  • Saint-Hilaire-du-HarcouĂ«t: with many shops and a market on Wednesday mornings on Place Delaporte and on Place de l'HĂŽtel de ville.
