Le Sentier des Ocres Reviews
Belle promenade... Mais dommage que des gens se sentent obliges de graver leurs prenoms dans l ocre.... De la destruction more »Beautiful walk... But a pity that people feel compelled to engrave their first names in ochre .... Destruction
Absolut sehenswert und wenn man auf dem Weg in Süden ist sollte man hier auf jeden Fall einen Besuch einplanen.

Especially suitable for visiting with the camper as equipped with exemplary parking space, on which to stay overnight, but to set up tables and chairs is prohibited. Paid fees and no way to dispose of. But clean and perfectly organized-parking fees are paid by credit card when leaving at the barrier. The place itself is a great setting, and a visit is recommended despite the steep lanes, many galleries and shops selling handicrafts, and one or the other restaurant invite you for a stroll.
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.
