Living not far from this site, I have visited many times and its beauty always amazes me. Definitely a must for country lovers. Lovely place to walk a dog, picnic etc. Creperie in the centre. Not for people with walking difficulties as there are some dangerous rocks to walk over for those unstable on their feet. Take good walking shoes,... More

Amazing rock formations and trail, but the caves are not for the faint hearted! We all loved the trail around the rocks, the scale of which are not similar to anything I have seen in the UK. There are truly stunning formations and there is a very entertaining 'rocking' rock. The caves are fairly scary and not for anyone with... More

There is a lot to see around Huelgoat. Our best attraction was Caesar's Camp, which is a misnomer since it was a Gallic oppidum (="town") and a fortified camp on the highest part of the Huelgoat Forest which would more properly would have belonged to Asterix and his tribe. Very steep slopes on the east and west sides, and guarded... More

We live not far from Huelgoat and always take visitors there for their first experience of central Brittany. Great fun for kids to clamber over huge rocks which in the UK would probably be out of bounds as there is a certain amount of danger in exploring the huge rockfall which runs from the bridge by the lake in Huelgoat...

what a fab day out we had!! Could have done with a slightly better map of the forest and the attractions within the forest as was slightly deceiving and could easily have gotten lost. We went on a baking hot day, and found it very humid with the river running by, but this didn't dampen our spirits! We spent all... More

This is a great place to visit. The rocks and paths into the forest are like stepping into a fairy tale. The paths can be quite uneven and siippery so it's best to have reasonable footwear (Imy sandals weren't entirely appropriate), The lakeside is also very tranquil and beautiful and there are plenty of places to eat and drink along...

This was France version of Brimham Rocks but on a bigger scale we only walked around a portion of this as our time was running out, but I would recommend this to all ages. My advice would be to wear either trainers or walking boots.

Wonderful bit of French forest in Brittany, by a lovely town. We had lots of fun following paths and climbing boulders. Feels very magical in places, will definitely visit again.

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 !!
