Le Sentier des Ocres reviews
Really beautiful colours and rock formations . The paths are very easy . Quite quiet . Reminds me of Bryce Canyon in the USA more »
The ocre cliffs are simply a beautiful sight. We took the shorter route which is supposed to be 30 minutes long, but it didn‘t even feel like 30 minutes. No complaints from the teenagers :) ! The... more »
Really enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Colors are amazing. Coming from Australia and having traveled the outback there, I was interested to learn about the similar way in which the colors were created. The walk itself is very well cared for, and you are encouraged not to go off-track to preserve the environment. It is around five minutes walk from the town up the hill past the car park. The price of entry is definitely worth it
The beauty is at the very beginning of the route, the rest is nothing special, just a usual trail in the forest. The small route should take 35 minutes, but it actually takes 20 minutes max. of 3 euro per person, children under 14 free. Parking 3 euro for 24h. The city near the Trail is small and unpresentable. I would say you need half a day for the trail and the city.
