“Pleasant Scenery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

The Gorges D'Heric is an enjoyable place to visit, but this is not Yosemite or Zion.The walk is easy with a concrete path all the way to the top, various mmarkers are placed along the route describing attributes & the scenery is pleasent & some of the various rock pools could be suitable for swimming, in September the water is pretty low so many swimming areas are too shallow. Tip after September 15th parking is free & both Buvette at the top & bottom were closed.For nayone with a semblance of fitness it is an easy 1hr up & 45mins down.Watch out for the Bees close to the buvette at the top.

“A superb walk with great scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

This is a beautiful walk or a great way to spend a day to lazing around rock pools and relaxing. Lots of photo opportunities and if you make it to the top there is even a cafe for a coffee or lunch!

“Gorge (ous)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

We like the Gorge d'Heric; it is ideal for either a short or long walk; although it is a there and back walk rather than a circular walk (there is a circular walk, but it is strictly for serious walkers) If you walk up to the small hamlet at the head of the valley there is a buvette where you can buy refreshments. Alternatively there are places where you can enjoy a picnic. It is more spectacular in winter when there is plenty of water gushing down the gorge.

“Thank goodness for the buvette at Heric!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

This is a lovely spot, with pools galore, popular with sunbathers and swimmers. The walk to Heric is probably ranked as "easy", being on a paved path all the way, and without any dizzyingly steep slopes. However, for the chronically unfit, like me, it can still be quite a challenge in the blazing heat. Thank goodness, then, that there is a buvette with very reasonably priced drinks and a lovely shaded patio when you reach the tiny hamlet (does it even qualify as a hamlet??) of Heric. However, don't trust to this as your sole source of water - take plenty with you!

The scenery is beautiful, and well worth the slog!

Parking is 3Euro, as I recall.

“Idyllic swimming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

A gorgeous but long trek up which is not really for the unfit as me! I got up there but boy oh boy it did cost me a little. The river that glides next to the path that goes up gives you gorgeous nature to see, waterfalls, pools to swim, rock climbing and even a long dive in to the water.
