Enjoying 100% of your walk or hike, without pitfalls, is within everyone's reach... For this we adopt a responsible and respectful behavior towards nature, those who live and work there as well as some rules of good conduct here!
be well informed
Ask about the characteristics and route difficulties to choose a hike adapted to your level and that of all participants.
Equip yourself well
Dress up with clothes and shoes suitable and pack protection from the rain.
Have the right equipment in your bag: hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, water, food, bag to bring back your waste, flashlight or headlamp, first aid kit and survival blanket.
Let's not forget
- to leave with a phone which battery is 100% charged
- bybringing the guidebook and/or the IGN map, I'm well-accompanied
- to share your itinerary with a loved one when hiking alone
- de to check the weather
And also that nature is a shared space
We are not alone in frequenting nature, we share space with foresters, farmers and those who practice other sporting activities. So we park in the car parks and we take care not to obstruct the movement of other vehicles (especially tractors and forestry machinery).
And why not consider carpooling or public transport?
During my hike
Respect nature, photograph rather than pick and let others enjoy it.
Bring back your waste (even organic) nature digests them badly! And no fires : they destroy the ground for thousands of years!
Stay discreet, wild animals live here
In nature we are always on the property of others so respect plantations, do not trample the hay meadows which will be used to feed the cattle in winter!
For my safety and that of the herds, I close fences and gates carefully after my visit.
I so not disturb pets or herds and I keep my dog on a leash.
I stay on the path, without taking shortcuts to avoid species trampling and erosion.
Know and respect the markup.
