A discovery path links the wind turbines at Mt-Crosin to the solar power station at Mt-Soleil in a playful and enjoyable way.

“Here I am, setting off towards Mt-Crosin to see the wind turbines. Standing like sentinels, they seem close by but I know that I will need to pedal further to reach them. I like to remember the interesting guided tour I had here last summer with my friends from the basket ball club. The beauty of the wild and varied landscape made of high plateaus, pastures, meadows and limestone cliffs is amazing. The trail is a joy and fills me with energy time and time again.”
