Lovely walk through the forest.... Huge boulders are amazing.... Path a bit hairy to start with but evens out... ... Lovely cafe to stop for a bit to eat or drink... Path follows the valley and is very picturesque .. Can highly recommend it for an afternoon stroll !!

Atmospheric. Interesting geology - known as Le Chaos because of bizarre huge boulders thrown up by volcanic action. Great paths. Very pleasant café in the forest too with wide range of beers and a bookshop.

Wonderful walks, great place to draw, tea rooms near the bottom. Very atmospheric, almost prehistoric in places. There's an amphitheatre for seasonal productions nestled in the woods.

Lovely forest full of large boulders & rock formations to climb on. Nice and shady on a blazing hot day & several picnic spots. Clear river running through it & although quite busy it was still peaceful. Small cafe in the forest & free parking in the town.

These walks are not for the infirm and require good footwear but the rocks and forests are interesting and fun. Chose a dry day; take a stick and keep an eye on children climbing on rocks, but, most of all, do the walks--you can't get lost.

The enormous boulders have to be seen to be believed. The various trails are clearly marked, taking in all the best viewpoints. We particularly enjoyed making Le roque tremblant move (although we needed a French family to show us how to do it) and the "mushroom" rock is unmissable - you have to go a little off path to find...

Very pretty and picturesque, if you want a quiet walk you will need to go further into the forest to escape the crowds. The maps are a little difficult to interpret, but just keep following the paths - it's pretty hard to get lost. Also good for a spot of mountain biking, but you will have to avoid walkers/children/tourists!

Beautiful forest with huge smooth boulders which make for a very photogenic setting. We didn't walk the whole area but spent most of the afternoon enjoying the verdant paths. Unfortunately so did a lot of other people so it can be difficult to take photos without tourists intruding into the shot.

The first day we walked the forest loop, through the Chaos and up to "Arthur's Camp" (an iron age hill fort modified in the middle ages) and round in a loop. The second day we walked the upper canal path, starting behind the Mairie. We didn't walk all the way to the mine, but took a short cut down to... More
