But the initiative to offer to the hiker these works of art in a natural and preserved site is a superb idea. On the other hand, this walk is only for experienced and well-heeled walkers (high gradient, unstabilized path where you have to look where you put your foot). It is possible (using a GPS hike or an IGN map at 1/25000) to make hikes longer than the simple sculpture trail) Mid-August, you can walk there on a Sunday afternoon without meeting soul that lives.
