Une belle randonnée avec mes 3 filles (9-7-7). Ça se fait très bien! Beau point de vue, bien indiquée, mais je fonctionne toujours avec la carte et le gps de mon téléphone. C’était boueux mais très bien praticable.

Sentier très bien entretenu, belle sortie, modérément accidenté. Quelques section plus difficile avec arbre tombé et boue dans le chemin.

Il manque deux ou trois indications dans le sentier pour les points de vues, sinon c’est parfait !!
