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.

And if you have time, around the Lake is a beautiful walk.

Un endroit apaisant pour faire des balades agréables en famille. A ne pas manquer, la roche tremblante, la grotte d'Arthus, ... Une forêt qui fait un peu penser à Brocéliande. more »A place soothing to make pleasant walks with the family. Not to be missed, the trembling rock, the cave of Arthus,... A forest that made some think of Brocéliande.
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!)
Beautiful woodland walks
Brigitte PourquierBeautiful cellars of rocks! And above all, try to move the trembling rock!
Yves VellerVery nice place for family rides. Watch out for the slippery rocks. Very beautiful in the fall.
MiminejiThis forest is beautiful and the chaos of rock is very impressive. A great walk for all. Attention in some places a little dangerous in the first part.
