  • Great afternoon spent strolling amongst my trees covered in snow. Calm and soothing we had a very good time. Several paths are available. Heading to the cottage d home of the circus starting point of one of the paths or poorly signposted... We went the wrong way at the start. Fortunately you always cross good souls to get back you on the right path!

  • I was there in my childhood and I had found the magic place? Stunning? Grandiose? I don't know, but in that order! I think go back occasionally! Thanks to nature for this setting!

  • Clearly a very nice hike for all levels! Very easy access with several car parks (allow € 4 per car to Park). No doubt, you will not be disappointed by the landscape that is frankly amazing whether you're at the beginning of the course or at the bottom of the circus. Tip: arrived at the end of the world you can climb the waterfall from the bottom to get on a promontory which will allow you to see the whole of the hike. Have fun to all!

  • To do in the spring because stunts are more impressive but also very beautiful in summer. Ideal for a family hike. The site is very well laid out and landscapes at the top. Do and redo. We were able to see a couple of grazing animals.

  • Beautiful! Parking paid (4 euros for cars) but worth it! We are bathed under the waterfall at the end of the world, water was 17 degrees that day!
