The Chasm of Hellin Planfoy

Hell’s Chasm

A space in the middle of nature a few minutes from Saint-Etienne!


A natural place for walking

Beyond this not very evocative name, the walk to the chasm of Enfer is a unique opportunity to put you in the green. A few minutes from Saint-Etienne, you will be directly immersed in the heart of a wild nature. Huge cliffs, surrounded by forests that surround this great dam of the Gouffre d’Enfer with the Pas du Riot above. This is the must-do hike for the people of Saint-Etienne in the Parc du Pilat.

Multiple activities

From the dam, you can enjoy many viewpoints. There are many hikes accessible from the village of Planfoy or from the village of Rochetaillée. But also, the possibility of discovering other activities on the Pôle d’Activités Verticales. Climbing, via ferrata and mountain courses are available to you so do not deprive yourself!
