Perrefitte Gorges

"On such a fine autumn day, I decide to go and explore the Perrefitte Gorges. After a short distance along a pretty path alongside a stream, called “La Chalière”, I arrive at the bottom of a long metal staircase. It’s an easy climb up. The pathway then carries on through a very beautiful part of the forest - it’s nice and airy and the autumn colours are just amazing. After crossing several little wooden bridges, I reach Plain Fayen, at the top of the Gorges. It’s a relatively short walk to Plain Fayen, so I decide to carry on up to the Moron Tower.”
