The Regional natural reserve of Normandy-Maine has just realised two trails availables for carriage drivers, with support from ONF (National Forestry Office), Departmental Council for the Sarthe, and the help of the CDTE 72 (Departmental Equestrian Tourism Committee) and the Cercle Équestre de l'Apothicairerie (Equestrian Centre).

Here is a presentation of the largest one.

This trail is, of course, open to riders; however, the path was designed primarily for carriages.

The whole route is marked with official carriage markings.

Helpful tips and recommendations for taking this road are available for your safety
