The Voie Verte (Greenway) is an itinerary that will allow you to travel the departement, over a distance of some 350kms following the old railway lines.
The fully signposted and secured itinerary, reserved for non motorised vehicles and entirely asphalted, the Voie Verte offers the possibility of going for a walk or doing some sport, alone or as a family, on foot, on a bike, on roller skates…
28 cycle-tourism loops, taking small roads, are marked out and attached to all the green ways and cycle routes and allow you to appreciate, on nearly 730 km, the local, artisanal and cultural life of the region...
This is a unique way to discover the environmental and cultural wealth of Southern Burgundy, through an authentic natural path that winds its way between Saint-Léger-sur-Dheune and Charnay-les-Mâcon, passing through Chalon-sur-Saône and Cluny.
Departure from Cluny: Prado car park - greenway connection.
The tunnel has been closed since 1 October 2017. It will be open on April 15,2018.
Objective: to maintain favourable conditions for bats in the tunnel.
During the tunnel’s period of closure, you can take the Loop No 14 (Cluny - Berzé direction; Berzé - Cluny direction). Attention, this loop with a cumulative positive difference in altitude of 175 meters, is almost 10 kilometers. It takes a little over one hour to make it happen.
