Access: on the road between Grasse and Castellane, at 10 km far from Castellane, there's a road crossing the route Napoleon, going to La Batie des Peyroules. Take this non asphalted road heading in the opposite direction, towards Les Cloutas, untill a little cottage on the right (about 1 km) where it's possible to park the car.

Approach from the parking, go on the road and turn right at the first junction. In a while, pass over a barrier and go on the path among the wood untill the beginning of the gorge.

Coming back: once at the end of the narrow part, take the path on the right going back to the beginning of the gorge, rising up on a little peak overlooking the gorge.
