  • .. But after several days of time dry because the course can be slippery and exposed places, therefore to be well shod, don't fear heights and keep her children. The loop at the start of the Devil's bridge was banned in April 2017 but you can always access the hole of the abyss, which is the exsurgence and the source of the eponymous Creek (drowned well over 40 m deep) by another route (A & R). The place is beautiful and you can admire the work of water (kettles) and the work of man (water intake and conduct forced for the factory electric of the greenhouse, built from 1900.

  • I finally made the entire circuit. Although improvements have been made the return path is dangerous. A notice should, at the entrance to the site, indicated that the return path is dangerous and forbidden to people suffering from Vertigo. The first part is not bad and very well furnished. The part with the stairs begins to be hard, especially if it were to meet someone, but it's doable though difficult. Then to the hole of the abyss, everything is pretty simple. The back trail starts then... pretty quickly the trail becomes very small and overlooks the gorges, regularly without handrail, sometimes very dangerous because no protection and no way to stand, I'm surprised there have not been an accident. Absolutely avoid if you suffer from Vertigo like me because the return is an ordeal.

  • even if the development work are therefore, this site is visited in good conditions in beautiful weather, dry in particular! the stairs and footbridges are very slippery when wet and spoil the spectacle of the giant pots bubbling.
