Foret de Huelgoat, Huelgoat

(360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This magical forest surprises us with its huge rocks come we don't know where. The charm operates from the entrance, with the Chaos and his mill. It is believed almost feel the presence of Merlin and a few fairy. A must see if you're in the area. And if you have time, around the Lake is a beautiful walk.

  • A nice place to walk around with different things to see: the cave of the devil, the trembling rock, piles of huge boulders of granite covered with foam... To do the weather of preference and with good shoes. Site original and natural...

  • 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
  • Beautiful cellars of rocks! And above all, try to move the trembling rock!

  • Very nice place for family rides. Watch out for the slippery rocks. Very beautiful in the fall.

  • This 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.
