The softwood forest, Foret de Huelgoat has diverse tree species, including silver fir, Scots pine, and fir Nordmann. The hurricane that devastated the forest in 1987 also allowed the introduction of the new American oak species. You can walk the path to Le Camp d'Artus in the forest, a Celtic camp dating to the first century BCE that attracted the Irish due to the silver mine. Lastly, visit La Roche Tremblante, the humongous 137-ton boulder.

Picturesque sites are very accessible to children and close enough. If you're motivated to do the grand tour of the forest then plan 3 hours.

As mentioned in the title, we drove 50km both ways to come here. We were so disappointed as we expected a forest, big and a bit fairy. Yes it is nice to see but small and more for kids (they were plen... more »

The rocks are truly majestic and for lovers of photography, it is a treat! walk that I advise to do the weather, after a rain the day before, the ground is slippery, I recommend good shoes to visit this forest especially for the descent into the cave of the devil! the place should be informed slightly also (think to take a flashlight!) and to descend the ladder I recommend to those who have Vertigo. But it's worth the trip! :D

Magical place with fairly well marked paths. Don't miss the devils well or the trembling rock. Start at the TI for a map just to give you a good overview. For parents of young children, do be careful at Devil's Well. Consider looking yourself first before making the climb down with the kids.

Excellent walk around the woodland with a small stream at the bottom of the path. At the end of the path you will find yourself in Huelgoat village, where there is icecream and coffee shops and a few small creperie resturants overlooking the lake. Lovely walk and sights.

Great place for walks, Devil's cave and Rocks Chaos are very impressive.

Well marked paths n And not too crowded. Well worth a visit

Extraordinary place, if rather hard to find due to indifferent signposting. A jumble of huge, ancient granite boulders in beautiful woodland with the stream at the bottom of the valley rushing through. Be sure to visit the devil's cave (grotte de diable) down the stairs - it's a scramble, but worth it. (Tempted to knock off a star because it's always raining when we visit!)
