Much of the ground is very stony with loose stones and gravel, or uneven.
The section that is along the edge of the Gorges de Loup is raw limestone, heavily eroded and uneven.
Additionally this section is adjacent to the Gorge and presents a vertical drop of several hundred metres just a couple of metres away from the trail; great care is needed.
Tips and hints
There are toilets and a couple of restaurant / bars adjacent to the car park. However by the time we returned to the car park the bars / restaurants were closed as were any in Gourdon itself (about 19.00 hours).
In view of the nature of the geology, underfoot ground and danger (cliffs) by the Gorge de Loup I suggest not suitable for children.
