Mare-Longue Botanical Trail

Interesting
Departing from Mare Longue, three waymarked trails offer a pleasant walk in the Hauts de Saint-Philippe. The nicest trail snakes through a beautiful primary forest, whose trees, some of which are several hundred years old, have colonised the successive volcanic lava flows. Plaques indicate the often poetic names of the species encountered. The second trail crosses the more recent plantations. The third meets up with the top of the Basse Vallée forest road.
