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

First of all wear good walking shoes as the boulders in areas are uneven and slippery. Access to the devils hole is via a metal ladder as well as some rock scrambling, so flat shoes are a must! It's a great place and so unusual, lovely surroundings and so peaceful. After the boulders there is a lovely walk alongside the... More

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...
