Useful Information

Classic equipment to face the weather and the hillside paths.
This marked trail following the markup charter of the Community of Communes of Puisaye-Forterre bears the number 32 inscribed on plates with a yellow background.
The markup was carried out by the association A chacun son chemin en Puisaye-Forterre in October 2021.
In case of trouble, thank you to fill the questionnary (it will take you 1 or 2 minutes).
Careful when you cross roads.
The fact that the markup is mentioned however requires that you leave at least with this description and its IGN map or the visorando app.

Visorando and this author cannot be held responsible in the case of accidents or problems occuring on this walk.

Marked hike n°62.
This site located in the void diagonal, as some like to say, conceals many assets.
If, with the help of agricultural machinery, the search for productivity was the goal in the middle of the 20th century, it has not led to the expected results. Today, it is towards a restoration of biodiversity that we are moving. The fauna and flora are gradually returning.
Discovering this heritage also helps to educate children.
Superb educational walk!
