    Access to Grotto du Diable is challenging

    by CatherineReichardt Updated Jul 24, 2012

    The Grotte du Diable (Devil's Cave) is located along the stream, close to the forest entrance from the town, and is well worth a visit.

    Technically it's not a cave, but rather a cavity created amid a jumble of fallen boulders about 10m below the path. Considerable effort has been taken to make the access safe and weatherproof, but there's no avoiding the fact that you have to shimmy down a rather long and steep fixed ladder to descend into the cave, and that the platform below is small and not all that easy to negotiate in the dim conditions.

    Conditions can be slippery underfoot

    by CatherineReichardt Updated Jul 24, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    (work in progress)
    In general, the tourist infrastructure that has been developed in the forest has been both appropriate and tasteful, providing a good balance between providing safe access and yet not intruding on the unspoiled atmosphere of the environment.

    Most paths through the forest are well graded and relatively level, so would be accessible to people with moderate mobility. However, they are not paved or surfaced and would therefore be somewhat challenging to wheelchairs and prams, though they're probably negotiable with pushchairs (strollers).

    Some rockier areas have been equipped with steps/footholds that have been carved out of the rock, and along certain sections, handrails have also been installed. However, be aware that even despite the interventions, these areas are likely to get slippery in wet or icy weather, so be particularly cautious under such conditions.
