Until the section of the ViaRhôna cycle route between Avignon and Beaucaire is completed, make the most of the greenway from Montfrin to Beaucaire that is already set up. It follows a former railway line, offering a gentle trip to Beaucaire. This town has been designated a Ville d’Art et d’Histoire for its cultural riches and lies on the Languedoc border with Provence. It also stands at the start of the Canal du Rhône à Sète (the latter on the Mediterranean), its river port a lively, picturesque spot in the town centre.

The route
From Montfrin, cross the Gard River on the D 500 road. At the round-about, take the direction Jonquières-Saint Vincent, along the D 763 road. After 500m, look out for the point where you join the greenway, on your left. There’s a tarmac track up until the end of the tunnel you pass through. Then the path is made of compact sand up to Beaucaire. At time of writing (August 2015) there was no singposting along this greenway.
If you wish to head into the centre of Beaucaire, the safest way is to leave the greenway at the level of the round-about at the northern entrance to the town, following the Chemin des Marguilliers road.
