Follow the bargemen’s trail on the towpath!
A moving landmark from the past, the towpath allows you to follow the trail of the bargemen who pulled the barges by the strength of their horses. Formerly exclusively reserved for commercial activity, the river Mayenne has become a unique place which reveals, in a preserved environment, its tourist, ecological and playful attractions.
