Le chemin du Tacot
Distance6.75km Vertical gain+47m Vertical drop-43m Duration2h00 Easy Easy
DepartureDeparture in Saint-Amand-en-Puisaye - 58 - Nièvre

A rather short bucolic walk.
Le Tacot path passes nearby the ochre and clay quarries where a protected species of toad "Le sonneur à ventre jaune", the yellow bellied toad hides away. Easily identified thanks to its yellow and black striped belly, and its heart-shaped pupils, no doubt, remnants of its prince charming days..... Its bright yellow colour, signifying toxicity is a means of protection against its predators.
