Take a walk in a calm and relaxing comb which has been fitted out with 2 fishing ponds, at the end of a discreet little plateau ... Ideal for a short stroll in all seasons to enjoy very varied atmospheres!
The Grande Rigole, the weir of the ponds, flows into the surprising and cool Corbière gorge which cuts through a small Jura limestone ridge located between Chambaran and Vercors. After the Plantées farm, in the woods overlooking the Isère valley, the wild boars in their breeding enclosure scour the soil, announcing themselves with concerts of satisfied grunts. Returning to the northern slope, the route borders the Clarette farm which gradually gives way to its small bucolic valley. The end of the route allows you to admire a countryside made up of meadows and walnut groves dominated by the wooded slopes of the Chambaran plateau.
Additional information : The town of Tullins, with its historic center and its shops, is less than one kilometer from the car park.
