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

Pleasant,quiet little town with a man-made lake on the edge. The highlight, though is the forest - look for the Trembling Rock (a huge boulder which can be rocked) and the Devil's Hole. The Hotel du Lac serves good lunches at a reasonable price.

Enormous boulders to climb. There is an old water mill there and a river running through the forest. If you are lucky there may be sprites among the trees, including harpists!

This is a beautiful forest! It feels like you've stepped back in time. Especially the entrance which is opposite the lake. Fully recommend a visit!

We took a walk in the forte de Huelgoat. We were amazed at the amount of tracks we could chose from. We went up past la Roche tremblent (managed to move it) and on passed Arturs camp and found the cafe in the woods where we stopped had a delicious lunch before walking back to la Roche campignon. A it... More
