You enjoy nature, you love it, take care of it... You are taking a hiking trail along which regular household waste collection points are made available to you. Out of respect for this exceptional space used each month by several tens of thousands of hikers and walkers, we invite you to deposit at these collection points all of your waste (glass, paper, leftover food, etc.) and any that you may unfortunately discover during your walk. Thanks to these simple but essential actions, let's keep this site clean, as nature has graciously offered it to us.
