Well worth the visit. We walked up on a Sunday morning with fine weather. Its about a 45-60 min hard walk up the zig zag route from the car park. Beautiful view back across CF from the top.

NO!!! You can take a train from Sarlat to go to CLERMONT FERRAND, then a bus (15km), then the little train to go to the top of montain Puy De Dome. Difficult!!!
