The site of Ecouges extends between 880 m and 1636 m of altitude and is essentially mountainous.
With a surface area of 918 ha, it includes various ecological groupings induced by the type of soil and topography: a dry beech forest on lapiaz, wetlands on impermeable terrains, pastures, a spruce forest, a fir beech forest and A maple slope under a cliff.
The Ecouges site is representative, on a departmental scale, of the diversity of forest environments on the montane floor of the limestone prealpine massifs.
It offers favorable conditions for a particularly abundant fauna: 70 species of birds, 22 species of mammals, 10 species of reptiles and fish.
The path is more than eased towards the sheepfold of Fessole and reserves some impregnable views on the valley of the Isère.
The return is the same as the itinerary of the go.
