Located at the exit of the town of Canéjan, this refreshing family walk goes up along the Eau Bourde, a small river which has its source in Cestas and flows into the Garonne at Bègles. We reach the Moulin de Rouillac, which belonged to Baron Haussmann in the 19th century. It is no longer exploited for the manufacture of flour but it belongs to the old built heritage.

The Balades à Roulettes® (BR®) are short, quiet walks, with a stroller or a small bicycle, or adapted for people with reduced mobility (in a wheelchair), offered by the French Hiking Federation of the Gironde.
