“A forest of grottos”
Review of Foret de Huelgoat

Foret de Huelgoat
Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in Huelgoat
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 July 2017

Huelgoat is a pretty village with a large man made lake draining into a river that threads its way around, under and otherwise past massive granite boulders. There are plenty of routes, the best is from the village centre past the Devil's grotto. This route can be difficult for those with mobility issues. A short drive away is another parking area where the trail can be picked up again and is easier going. A great place to wander, trek or cycle.

We walked through the forest to the village from the campsite at La Riviere d'Argent. The boulders are absolutely jaw droopingly huge, never seen anything quite like it. There's a nice little cafe near the village, the footpaths are generally well way marked and well used, although we found that our return route via the old mine canal petered out near its end without positive signing. You need to be reasonable fit and agile, proper boots and walking poles are a good idea, in wet conditions sensible care is essential.

We made a walk, like it is described in the "Rothers Wanderführer". The walk takes at least 3 hours. Impressive and really wonderful is the part from Huelgoat to the Chaos du Moulin, Grotte du Diable, Grotte Arthus etc (is a MUST!). The second part from the parking "Arquellen" to the "Rivière d'Argent and the silver mine is not worth to go. Especially the marking of the way is extremly bad. There is always the risk to go the wrong way. Sometimes the way ends in nothing.

Absolutely beautiful forest with ginormous rocks. Make sure you bring your walking shoes because the walk is lengthy and its uneven. We went with our 3 year old and did not take a stroller and boy im glad we did not. You cannot take it through some of the super small spots. Do visit the devils grotto(i think thats what it was called) - you get down a steeeep flight of stairs and then its gorgeous-make sure your shoes are anti-slip. We took turns without our child here. Theres a giant rock that comes on your right hand side in the water that looks like a cup amongst other boulders- GO TO IT!! You can actually get to it through the other rocks on the left and hop all the way to the cup one- it makes for some seriously fun shots! Also check out the moving rock thats perched on an elevation. Get under the curve on the right hand side and press your back against it and lift with both your hands like you are lugging something on your back- it will actually teeter totter. Awesome hike. We loved it and hope you do too!
