Sentier des Monts
After having rented scooters for our kids at the funicular of Mont-Soleil, we headed off to discover the Sentier des Monts. All along the way, discoveries were awaiting us: a huge solar array, an astronomical observatory, elegant and fascinating windmills… The children were delighted by the games and activities proposed. It was a great stroll!
This trail links the Mont-Soleil solar power plant to the Mont-Crosin wind power plant and offers games and information relating to renewable energy, fauna, flora, global warming, geology and the weather.
