Fabolous short walking path through ocre hills. It can get crowded in the high season towards evening when the sun brings out the colors more, but for those able to walk a little further there is an additional trail with fewer little children. But anyway this is great for children and childish adults, so bring your most tolerant perspective

Very nice experience, even if I consider that Colorado-Provenzal in Rustrel is more interesting and amazing. The town is so cute and pleasant.

Really enjoyed our visit to the village of Roussillon and Le Sentier des Ocres. Most of the buildings in and around Roussillon are built from the red rock in this former quarry which is now a park.

Feels like you're walking on Mars or something, amazing and beautiful! I would advise everyone, but better to go closer to the closing time, when the sunset starts and the view is at it's best!

A beautiful conservation area in an area long quarried and then returned to nature, it is a marvel of a site to visit and the town of Rousillon is naturally part of the visit, very quaint and picturesque! We were there on market day so the town was even busier than normal! Lovely!

We walked through late in the afternoon when it was cooler and the sun was setting. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

My husband and I enjoyed the 50 minutes walk through the unique landscape. We went in the afternoon, therefore it was quite hot. However most of the walk is shaded by trees. A great little activity for 2.50€ per person.

The villa - Roussilon is gorgious, a deligthful "village perchee" . But then you take a walk in this sentier, the color, the form of the stones, is amazing. Dont miss, is a 45mn walk but worth the efort

Nice walking paths among Ocher mountains. Go in the early morning on a sunny day - colors becomes bright and beautiful and park is not over crowded
