Overlooking the village of Quingey, the côte de Moini grassland is located on a wooded slope that borders the major bed of the Loue.
The already advanced closure of this vast grassland bears witness to the development of farming activities and the abandonment of traditional practices; the cessation of grazing in these sensitive areas led to their rapid colonisation by trees and shrubs, eventually leading to the development of a forest.
Today, only the lower slopes are still used for small gardens or orchards. The site is home to some remarkable flora and fauna, including a number of beautiful orchids, including the magnificent Burnt Orchid.
There are three walking trails starting from the goat farm car park (RD 13 towards Abbans-Dessus), where you can discover the flora and fauna characteristic of limestone grasslands, as well as the history of this area.
