The Forest of Gillardes & The Canyon of the Infernet

Description

A refreshing and inspiring walk for the children to discover the 2nd most important groundwater emergence in France after the Fountain of Vaucluse, dominated by high limestone cliffs. All along the path, educational panels provide information on the fauna, the flora and the geology of the site. From the car park of the Gillardes, follow the “Plic et Ploc” discovery route (specific marks) with two possible loops, starting when you cross the bridge and follow the river. A metal bridge takes you to the opposite side of the river. The short loop comes back on the left towards the Gillardes ; the long loop takes you up to the right, through a path lined with fir trees, joining with a new track taking you to the Canyon of the Infernet
