Leaving from the Canine Club in Grimaud

On this circular walk you will discover part of the Grimaud plain – a source of wealth for centuries – between plantations and wild flora on the banks of the river.

The trail takes you alongside the river Giscle and the vineyards, and you can admire the tall, majestic ash trees.

Vineyards and ash trees

are emblematic of the region

The word Peyron, from the old Provençal ‘peira’, which mean stone, here designates the large flat stones that once allowed the fording to cross the Giscle.
The magnificent trees that populate this part of the plain are ash trees. In the 11th century, the whole territory that today covers the Community of Communes, was called the Fraxinetum, the Freinet, the name of this tree.
