LA DOLCE VIA BY BIKE
In 1886, the Compagnie des Chemins de Fer Départementaux began the ambitious project of creating a railway between La Voulte-sur-Rhône and Saint Agrève. In 1968, the operation of the line ceased, competing with the road. Since 2018, the old railway has been rehabilitated as a "soft track". By bike, on foot or in rosalie, travel the 90 km of gentle path arranged and secure, in the heart of the preserved landscapes and the great natural spaces of the Ardèche.
When you love your terroir, you take care of it. For example, the villages of Chalencon and Silhac have come together to enhance their wetlands with the mission of restoring and maintaining meadows and wet woodlands through environmentally friendly agricultural activity and enhancing and giving an educational dimension to these environments, in particular via the hiking trail that connects the sites.
The surroundings are full of small corners that only the most curious will be able to discover. Come and get lost at the bend of a trail to see what others will never see. Who said curiosity was an ugly flaw?
