The greenn way of the Hautes Vosges

La Green Way of the Hautes Vosges is a multi-activity track, 55 kilometers long, set up on the old railway track in the Moselle-Moselotte valley. Free access and accessible to all, it allows, in complete safety and in excellent practical conditions, altogether walking, hiking, jogging, cycling, mountain biking, rollerblading, skating, and cross-country skiing. You can also rent a bike at the old train-station Vagney, 100 meters from the greenway, that is to say 6 kilometers from our rentals. If you prefer to take your own bike, a locker room in your rental will allow you to safely store it.

Hiking for children

Your children from 4 to 12 years old can also hike, thanks to Randoland circuit cards. They cover the area of the Haut du Tôt, near the Gite de la Roche des Ducs (it is possible to get these cards at the Vagney Tourist Office).
