Trekking - Trou à l'ours

Pont-de-Nant - Trou à l'Ours - Cinglo - Pont-de-Nant

This walk takes you into a narrow passage you cross on a ladder for about 5 metres. The challenge is what makes the walk so captivating.

This walk follows a gentle slope to the bottom of the Nant Valley reserve, climbs up to cross the Trou à l'ours, then becomes gentler again before heading back down to Pont-de-Nant through the forest.
