We did took the green route (de la vierge). A nice one hour walk with the boys, although they don't like walking, they did like this trail. Nice views, fairytale scenery. My 12 year old son even wanted to go back!

This is a lovely and very interesting place. Quite an adventure for the children too, scrambling over the rocks and exploring the wooded glades. There was plenty of flora and fauna to spot too. There are short walks and long walks and we didn't come across too many other people. Unfortunately it started to rain and the rocks got very slippery, so I wouldn't recommend a rocky walk on a rainy day. Take a pic-nic and you could easily while away a day here. It's lovely.

The forest is quite exceptional with its huge rocks all over. Kids loved finding caves and hideouts there. The view over the river up high over the cliff is really beautiful. The walk is well marked and easy to follow.

A lovely place. Behind every rock or tree you expect some fairies, elves or gnomes to pop out. It is not an easy walk. Sometimes you have to climb a very rocky path and there's quite some going up and down. You don't have to be an experienced climber but don't take it to lightly.
Anyway I loved it and will certainly go back there to look for more fairylike creatures.

We parked at parking "de Lestong" where we started the yellow 4KM walk, with 4 kids (age 10 through 15). It took us about 2 hours to do the walk, because the kids wanted to look at every little cave they saw and climb on most of the interesting rocks. We encountered 3 little caves, and one rather deep hole in the ground (it took 5 seconds for a stone to hit the bottom of the hole!). The scenery was great, and the yellow markings were easy to find so we never felt we were going the wrong way.

A word of caution: at some points you are walking meters away from a deep cliff, and that can be very dangerous. At the beginning of the walk we very clearly told our kids, especially the youngest one, that running was absolutely forbidden, and I am glad we told them; it is not hard to imagine excited kids running off the cliff.

It was fairly warm that day, and while trees provide a lot of shading so you're not walking in the sun all the time, it is still a bit exhausting. We each had a liter of water, which was all gone at the end of the walk. So bring something to drink; without the water it would not be so fun.

All in all, a great free afternoon spent.
