Waytypes of the stage
From Epinal’s port, you head up the Moselle Valley, alongside its canal, as far as a canal bridge. Then head for Bouzey Lake, followed by Bains-les-Bains. The greenway on this stretch has a good surface, is well signposted and is easy to cycle along, running beside the canal and past its locks.
Link to Bains-les-Bains
To reach the centre of Bains-les-Bains, the 3km link is signposted, but there are no safety features in place for cyclists; you follow the D164 road and there are slopes to tackle.
