The walk takes you through the Bois des Sources du Peugue de Pessac, a natural site, partly classified as a Sensitive Natural Area, which is the western starting point of the Coulée Verte du Peugue. You take here a part of the metropolitan GR of Bordeaux.
This 113-hectare forest site is one of the largest wooded areas in the Bordeaux conurbation. It is made up of a great diversity of tree species, a beautiful pond, a lagoon and a pond, real places for observing fauna and flora. Its different environments (wetlands, pine and deciduous forests) give this place a wild charm.

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.
