Easy trail

The dense forest is marked by a horseshoe. The direction of the horseshoe indicates the direction to take.

  • straight
  • right
  • left

As the markings isn't numbered, It's better to have a map because som intersection could take you to other itineraies.

The trail passes through 3 fords:

  • La Guilbaudière ford: it can be crossed all year round, except for flood periods.
  • La Stèle Ford: it sometimes rises one meter in winter and during major floods and weather alerts.
  • La grande Rhée Ford: it can be crossed all year round.

Caution : branches might be carried by the steam of Les Verreries.
