Elancourt Hill

Description

At an altitude of 231 meters above sea level, the Hill of Elancourt rises, the highest point in the Paris region. From its top there is a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower, La Défense and the surrounding forests. This is a place where you can enjoy the beauty of nature and at the same time feel the atmosphere of business Paris.

Elancourt Hill not only offers stunning scenery, but is also an ideal location for the Olympic mountain biking competition. 95% of the tracks designed by expert Nick Floros are based on existing tracks. This minimizes the impact on the hill's biodiversity and preserves its uniqueness.

The Elancourt Hill project is also important for the development of sport and society in Paris. The various legacy routes will be accessible to a range of users - from children and families to experienced riders. This is a great opportunity for communities previously cut off from sporting activity to gain access to a rich sporting heritage.

Elancourt Hill is not only a sports place, but also an environmentally important site. Situated on the site of former sandstone quarries, it was transformed from a landfill into a public park thanks to an ambitious restoration program in the 1980s. The selection of Elancourt as the site of the 2024 Olympic Games will further strengthen and support existing sporting activities, as well as improve the environmental benefits of the site.
