Embark on a journey to explore the steppe grasslands inhabited by the wild grass known as "marabout". An educational walk for people of any age who are curious about their surroundings. A nature trail that also pairs well with the Esseillon forts.


Follow history as you explore a nature trail that has a great deal to teach you. What an thrilling programme! You are about to cross two military forts with memorable names, and a Sardinian cemetery that's come through the ages unscathed. Take your time and look around as you go. Reading is a must on this trail designed for all ages.
