Enjoyed our walk. Followed the three hour circuit but did it a lot faster. If you were pushed for time you could do twenty minutes of the orange , three hour circuit up to a view point and then retrace your steps. Paths vary from smooth to rocky.

I was very exited to visit this place, because I have seen so many pics and good notes about. It's very interesting and amazing, absolutely unexpected. The main part of the way is covered with red sand, so wear proper clothes and shoes: those will be red at the end! You have to pay only the parking ticket (about 5€... More

perfect red rocks are surrouned by forest. But i warn you - go there in the morning. I was in the spot around 14 h. And it was hot as crazy. And you cant enjoy it for 100% in this case

Beautiful, feels like you're in Arizona when you're actually in Provence. I would suggest going before 9 am as all the tourists usually get there at 10 am. So you can get some nice pictures without having to worry about other people everywhere. Head straight to 'Sahara' on the map and you can later go around the trail after seeing... More

Beautiful and impressive! Arriving in the "Sahara" after a beautfiful walk in the forest, the scene is breath-taking... Absolutely impressive and magic! The children (3 & 7) were exstatic. This is such an original place and as a photographer, turned out absolutely fabulous. A must do for families in the area. But before noon as the heat gets difficult in... More

this is a regional Park. These types of parks are common in France. It has a place for camping. And it is easily accessible. There are beautiful trails that are well maintained throughout the area. What is interesting about this area is it is a abandon ocher mine. Ocher is a red – orange mineral that was used as a... More

I have been there twice. It's always a pleasure. You have the choice between three trails with different level of difficulty so no matter your fitness level you'll be fine. The price is really reasonable (5 Euro per car no matter how many people in the car). My biggest advice is to get there as early as you can in... More

We drove to see the canyon, which a guidebook said had some hiking trails for experienced hikers. We never imagined there is no view at all UNLESS you are an experienced hiker -- or have time and desire to undertake the two-hour or three-hour hikes. (The one-hour hike has a view of s sandy cliff in an area named "Sahara"... More

This has not been my first visit here... which I guess, is a good sign. There are 3 different hikes you can make which vary in their length. As far as I know, you can also book guided tours which is unnecessary in my opinion: The routes are signposted very well and you won't have any trouble finding your way.... More
