  • Nice walk in this unusual landscape. We had a great time (1 h 30) in the middle of all these colors...

  • "Sahara" with ocher is really very easy access. For a little more seasoned walkers I strongly advise to make the orange "Belvedere" circuit which allows to continue the walk in the Woods to see others. The ride ends with a magnificent view overlooking the Valley with ochre. Plan for this ride of good shoes, and choose a time when it was not rained before because the water may make the road impassable.

  • Nice walk in the Woods. When we were there it had been raining so much that they closed off a portion of the trail so we missed it.

  • Nice scenic walk.
  • 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...
  • Very funny day out. The place is really worth the parking price. Best at sunset
  • 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.
