Lovely walks, interesting caves, this forest is full of magic and mystery. Suitable for young and old walks there are broad paths through the wood beside the twinkling stream filled with huge boulders for the adventurous to clamber upon. Watch out for the grotte du diable, it's small with a very steep ladder. So nice to find something like this... More

I was concerned at my ability to ramble around here but found the place easy to take at my own pace. It was absolutely fascinating. The rock formations and wonderful play on the rocks from the sun was terrific. Would highly recommend a day here. We saw elderly, young families and babes in prams (although a few places would have... More

Fascinating rock formations. Devils cave, rock formations, pleasant forest walks to explore. Warning, pre school kids need to be glued to you, slightly older kids watched closely, lots of dangerous drops. We found the signage pretty good unlike others, NB Tourist office shut 12 to 2 if you are after a map. A very enjoyable 3 hr ramble.

Beautiful and fun walk in the forest ! Forget about taking the pushchair though. Our kids of 3 and 6 years old loved it as much as we did. Plenty to see on the way and walking on the stones was great fun. Indeed signing could be better, but there are always people on the way to ask to.

The forest of Huelgoat is the most beautiful forest we have seen in Brittany. It has beautiful rocks and caves. We had a pleasant walk for about three hours, visiting most of the local sights. Signing is bad. Not even the map of the local tourist office helped us out, as it is flawed. That spoiled our visit a bit.

Really enjoyed this beautiful forest and children loved the huge rocks. Well worth the drive to get there. Only frustration was lack of clear walking trail or maps...... First to find where to start the walk and then once in which way to go - we just kept walking in what we hoped was the right direction! We had such... More

Get a free map from the tourist information in the village before you visit so you know which way to walk! Parking is free in the town centre and we walked from there. The forest is amazing, really unusual and loads of formations to look at. Made for an excellent stop over afternoon travelling across Brittany. There are public toilets... More

Well, I wasn't expecting this! The boulders are amazing. Apparently they were formed underground and found their way up to the surface. There is a jumble of huge boulders going down the river valley, you can hear the river flowing about 7m below. The Devils grotto is a must, with its waterfall and noise. Just be aware there is a...

We spent a happy three hours exploring the amazing giant boulders and tracks through these woods. Unless you have a good sense of direction be prepared to get lost several times as we did! One bonus was coming across a tucked away cafe where we were able to get a refreshing beer and crepe. Despite our lengthy stay meandering around... More

The forest is really magical. Fronm the huge rocks at the Chaos, to the Fairies' Pool and La Grotte d'Arthus. I really loved the Champignon. We visited the forest on several occasions as there is so much to see. Some of the tracks are a bit difficult, steep with no handrails. You can have several relatively short walks or long... More
