If you look at today's tour on the map, it's mostly straight ahead. Because between St.-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Farnham, as well as between Farnham and your destination Granby the route Verte 1 runs on a disused railway line. It is wonderfully quiet between the three small towns. Here and there a farmhouse, framed by fields, meadows and small groves.Since you can let your gaze wander on the straight paths, you will soon notice the knobbly hills, which protrude from the otherwise very flat landscape. These are the hills of the Monteregie range of hills. Nine of these hills begin eastward from Mont Royal in Montreal. The rock of the round hills is very weather-resistant and so the hills are up to 1100 meters high.Granby is a small regional center known for its large mall and zoo. In the streets of the city center, you will find some options for your dinner.
