Because of this area which is part of the Arselle's plateau, but also the landscape, botanic and faunfaunistics, the plateau is a protected natural reserve. There is a prefectorial decree for its biotope. The aim is to preserv it this area, from its flora to its fauna.

From the Bachat-Bouloud parking area (next to the tree climbing activity), go to the East and find the forest track in a hairpin turn road.
