Fancy a little trip out in the Bonneville area ? This easy, pleasant walk takes you between woods and the banks of the Arve and is great for everyone, both children and grownups alike.

Discover an often unknown environment: the wetlands of the Arve. This loop allows you to follow a bicycle path in complete safety, to go around the ponds and to cross the Arve on a pedestrian bridge.

The wooded part of this hike is recognized as a Zone Naturelle d'Intérêt Faunistique et Floristique de type 1 (ZNIEFF). It is the ZNIEFF of the Arve gravel pits. You will be able to meet various animal and plant species such as
- the beaver
- the brown nutsedge
