Mayenne has a passion for walking . There are no fewer than 3,000 kilometres of trails available for walkers, including many circular routes.
The enormous size of this network is a result of the local passion for walking  : even the tiniest village will often have its voluntary group which is very active in tidying and clearing footpaths and organising rambles.

You can wander across any and all of the area at your own pace, enjoying its different landscapes:

  • the undulating landscapes of the north-east
  • the vast plains of the south
  • the Craon district
  • the Laval - Loiron district
  • the towpath along the River Mayenne
  • the former railway tracks that have been converted into ramblers’ routes
