From Le Tovet, follow the trail that starts at the Totem at the entrance to the Wetlands Interpretation Trail. Lulu the dragonfly, the trail's mascot, will be pointing the way along the path.

After an initial climb, you rejoin the track and continue left towards the marmot observation point and the wetlands presentation table. Just before entering an undergrowth area, a footpath to the right and back takes you to a presentation of lizards in the ruins of an old mountain pasture chalet. The next stop is the Sabot de Vénus, a flower emblematic of our region, which can be seen a little way off the path.

Continue upwards until you reach a small path just before the Chalet des Terreaux, where you will alternate between mountain pastures and forest. You will pass anthills, listen to the sounds of nature and cross the pond, a beautiful wetland with a display of amphibians.

Continue along the path. Take a short, steep path through the forest to reach the last wetland area, cross it on an 800-metre-long platform and then rejoin the path back to your starting point.
