Great Outdoors

This vast park covers 257,000 hectares of rocky mountains and verdant forests. For walkers, there are several discovery trials to follow including the 'Three Forest Trial' and 'In the Land of Lancelot of the Lake' and the woodlands are great for mushroom picking (as long as you know what you are doing!). At the Maison du Parc in Carrouges, you'll find tourist information and a museum about the park so it is a great place from which to start your visit before going on your own journey of discovery through this stunning landscape!
