  • Small friendly walks (1 h or 2 h). I recommend the big ride (made in 50minutes without children) because we have a global vision of the site. Otherwise very pleasant walk in the forest with a lot of sand colored differently under the feet.

  • Great site, walking in this Provençal Colorado, a path very easy, everything is magical, the colors are dazzling, especially when the Sun's hitting it. Next also must go to the village of Roussillon, a marvel. But I will not tell you everything, you to go there, you see this beauty. attention however should not be shoes in canvas and white.

  • Beautiful place, where children can play and play. Probably something would have to be done sooner or later for the protection.

  • Very nice trail. We would recommend to do it very early or very late in the day as it can be very crowdy and tourists run all over the place without any respect for the site. There's more erosion due to tourist then due to water...
  • The colorful hills here are great too look at, albeit. If visiting during the summer however, go early to avoid the heat and keep in mind the signs pointing out the danger of fire.
  • Very funny day out. The place is really worth the parking price. Best at sunset
  • Some very interesting formations, the shortest hike is ~1h light roundtrip, worth doing it!
  • A lot of photo opportunities! But you need to avoid when the weather is hot.
