These botanical trails offer 22 panels to improve your knowledge of flowers. Spread over several hiking trails located between 2000 and 2700m, they highlight the richness and diversity of the local biotope.
The SD of Chandolin can’t guarantee quality walks, because of their actual conditions.
The lower altitude trails (yellow and blue) have been renovated in 2021.
On the higher altitude trails (red and green), many of the directional signs and the numbered ones referring to the booklet have been badly damaged.
The SD wants to make you aware of the difficulties and risks you may encounter.
These trails are aimed to inform on the different types of local vegetation. 22 didactic panels introduce the local flora by offering 4 itineraries. The numbering of the panels is related to the natural environment.
