  • We hiked all three circuits. Beautiful views from the ledge, vegetation and absolutely sublime colors in autumn.

  • One of my favorites place in Ardèche. When is burning hot, this forest offers a good way to spent some time walking by the shade of the trees. Its labyrinth looking paths are a cool way to entertain children. You have 3 circuits at your disposal, the yellow one is definitely the best with the view over the Chasezac river at the top of the cliffs. (Beware of you have children it could be dangerous). My recommendation would be to take half the blue circuit and half the yellow circuit by the cliffs. The place is a little crowded on July and August so recommend to go early because parking is limited.
  • Beautiful route, you may not be afraid to drive briefly past other vehicles/rocks. A fun experience!
