Strolling on the paths of Espédaillac

Nature lovers, tree lovers and heritage lovers, come and discover the pedestrian circuits that radiate around the village. An ideal family outing in total autonomy!


What is this tree?

At the start, in the middle and at the end of the trail, by scanning a QRcode with your smartphone, you will have the pleasure of listening to a soft voice that will guide you on the circuit. Throughout your walk, discover the diversity of trees that shape the landscape, scan the codes to view the complete cards, in French or English, of each species. The tour is easy and shaded, totally suitable for children. You will be able to contemplate the fauna and flora of the Causses du Quercy and finish with a picnic or snack break right next to the playground.


Trees and heritage

Through this trail, you will learn, again with the help of QRcodes, all the specifics of trees and heritage. The beginning of the walk follows in the footsteps of the small circuit and then continues on a larger loop. As you progress, you will have the chance to listen to two explanatory soundtracks. It’s a total immersion in the natural atmosphere of the Caussian Mountains. Look up, be curious; listen to the birds singing, the buzzing of the bees; let yourself be surprised by the colors and smells of the nature! On your way back, take the time to visit Espédaillac, elected the most welcoming village in the Lot in 2019!

We want to make Espédaillac live from what is the simplest, the most beautiful: Nature!
