  • Great walking with nice paths. Views superb. Need to be fairly fit and take plenty of water and snacks!  more »
  • Very nice site with a view over the mountains of Caroux. Nice ride on a very well passable road. Possibility of swimming when there is enough water in the Creek!

  • Great site in the middle of nature. Road to the village of Heric. We went with 2 strollers... 300 meters of uneven positive on 5 km. Scale 1:40 and 50-55 minutes downhill. To do alone, with family, with friends, in a group.

  • Very nice walk through the gorge
  • Great place Cooling
  • Beautiful gorges! Parking at the entrance, it will cost € 3.50 for the day for a vehicle. You must then walk on a concrete trail. The small beaches will be accessible very easily by the roadside. However, I advise you to have good sneakers, stepping on the rocks can be hazardous by place.

  • Heavenly place! Wild place where nature has clearly all rights. Provide good Sandals for walking and swimming. Swimming in crystal clear water. See and do absolutely in the Hérault. 5 km (so 10 km round trip). Feasible with children (mine loved). Arrival, you are welcomed in a beautiful mountain cottage where you can have a drink in the shade. The big downside of this House is that it is not powered by running water... so no of toilet! A toilet dry (green, with the sawdust) is not a luxury! The snack bar has the entrance of the Gorge (near the parking lot) is clearly worth the detour, ultra nice, drinks and snacks very democratic. A simple example: we ate a delicious cheese slate for only €5! (See photo)

  • Path, even with a buggy. En route was beautiful beaches to stay put or have a rest. Always with the sound of water and birds around you.
