Starting from Saint-Léonard-des-Bois, you can link the circuits “Les méandres de la Sarthe” (17 kilometers) and “Le passeur de Montaigu” (8 kilometers – accessible only from May 1st to September 30th), these two circuits overlapping slightly, making you a loop of around 23 kilometers passing through the village of Saint-Céneri-le-Gérei.
Also starting from Saint-Léonard-des-Bois, you can link the “Vallée de Misère” circuit (only the Mont Narbonne loop to the west – 3 kilometers – the eastern loop, on Mont du Haut Fourché will have been done the day before on the “Les méandres de la Sarthe” circuit) and “Bois de Chemasson” (13 kilometers) via the GR36 at the “Anciennes Ardoisières” (dotted pink on the maps). This makes a loop of around 16 kilometers.
Continuation day 2 or day 3 (optional)
If this doesn’t seem like much, you can join the “La Prisonnière” circuit (8 or 15 kilometers) from the “Bois de Chemasson” circuit at Les Chapronnières, or stop for the night not far from the junction between the two circuits, at La Grande Savane (open from April to September), located at Le Petit Mohaison, and return on the third day to Saint-Léonard-des-Bois.
