Activities to do at the Rochers du Saussois
Climbing the Saussois site
This is the main activity of the tourist site: climbing. Since the 1950s, climbers have been getting together to tackle the 60-metre high limestone walls.
So if you are used to climbing, have fun. If not, it's best to take the car or the hiking trail to the top of the rock.
Enjoy a sweet moment with your family at the foot of the Rochers du Saussois and take the opportunity to have a picnic on the village side. The extensive nature area will allow you to have an incredible view of the site while keeping an eye on your children in the playground.
Hike to the top of the rock
Thanks to a signposted route at the start of the trail, it is possible to walk to the top of the Saussois rock.
But be careful! This walk can be dangerous, as there are no barriers. It will take you about 15 minutes to get there.
The view is so sublime that you will soon forget the climb.
Discover the rock from the Yonne
For the more adventurous among you, prefer to walk along the Yonne river to avoid the risk of falling. A green lane has been set up so that the whole family can walk or ride in complete safety.
