My friend and I got off the train in Dijon after dark, and had decided we wanted to hike to a little town nearby, and so we picked a direction and started hiking. Luckily, Dijon is a relatively easy place to find you way around, and so we were able to get some good food and wine as provisions for our trip, then headed out in the general direction along the river.
What we found along the way were helpful people, and some absolutely beautiful countryside. There is a lovely canal running more or less parallel to the river for quite a ways, and there is a nice pathway along the canal. Even if you don't hike along it for days and camp under the stars as we did (even in summer, I have to admit it got really cold at night), I would certainly recommend taking the time to go for a day trip, rollerblade, bike, or just take a picnic. I even saw a few people fishing. I got the impression that not many tourists make it out that way, but it was definitely a wonderful way to see a slightly more laid back part of France.
