An exceptional path, to reconnect with nature.

  • In Pic’orée, a sensorial field at the entrance of the Bon-Secours forest, nature is best enjoyed bare foot, the best way to disconnect from the routine and daily stress. This is a wonderful opportunity to sharpen your senses on a 150 metres trail where every material feels like a new experience, an invite to revisit forgotten emotions, feel cold or humidity, softness or roughness.
  • There are, in total, 20 trays filled with natural (straw, reeds, sandstone, spruce cones, bark...) and surprising (pods, corks, billiard balls...) textures to discover, from 3 years of age.
  • The sections between trays also are sensory experiences - wooden planks, slaps of limestone rock, bamboo mats or even hollow trunks, structures made of wood, trunks covered in moss, tyre neatly lined. Not a second to get bored!

Learn about the forest

  • After the trail, visitors can learn about trees, mammals, birds, plants, mushrooms, small animals at the Explor’forêt interpretation centre.
  • The Bon-Secours forest, covering 1,000 hectares, is free to access and features 2 family trails (4 and 7 km).
  • Explore Escale Forestière, a playful, amazing show on the flora and fauna of the forest concluding on a virtual journey in a hot air balloon so see how beautiful the park is from above.
