  • A nice trail that winds among the pubescent Oaks and junipers cades. Here the mineral meets vegetation and geological curiosities such as ruiniform training or lapiez them decorate the landscape. At the bend of a path you meet a small farmhouse of Alphonse Daudet and on its promontory the Ermitage Saint-Eugene dominates the Chassezac Valley. It is accessed by a calade and if desired you can visit as long as you take an appointment (a sign gives you the news just in front). Along the cliff we have a magnificent view on the Valley, the Vans and Chassagnes. This trail is accessible to all and approximately an hour and a half. Only condition, especially in fall, winter and spring well shod be because certain portions in the shade are slippery. And especially caution especially for young children at the level of the perspective cliff. A feeling which is really worth the visit.

  • We did the green channel from the 2nd car park (P clearing). Very nice ride for children attention there still hose and vigilant on certain passages. Our term for this loop: 45 min. So less than some previous opinions.

  • Superb very accessible family walk. Even when plan a minimum of equipment (shoes, water, snack) because there are a lot of stones. The trail of the Virgin is great for the kids, particularly the maze (feel free to lose you and borrow variants). The trail of the cornice is beautiful. We did the two end to end with two children good walkers (6km from dish).

  • Advance was totally unclear how long the route was (not useful with children) and the route was badly. Further I saw little in the rocks that should appear on animals. But that can also be me.

  • Fantastic course in the forest in the middle of rocks where the kids can climb and crossing of small caves, beautiful bursts for the latter. Be careful, avoid in case of very high temperatures (34 °, no water, it's hard)
