The most amazing structures are visible right at the beginning of the trail. No need to walk kilemetrs-long ways to see the heart of the park. Stunning colours and rock formations.

The ocherfields are a nice place to visit if you're in the neighborhood. It is an old mining site where they would mine ocher colored rock. The fields stretch quite far and make for some beautiful landscapes. The nearby town is also worth a visit, as it is very colorful, with all building being made out of or being colored with the stone from the fields. Do keep in mind that the walking routes through the fields are relatively short. These fields are also a big tourist spot, so you'll want to keep that in mind when visiting. If you visit early in the day and outside of the tourist season, you'll probably have a better time enjoying the ocher fields.
Astonishing views. The trail is simple and you get to see plenty of beautiful nature. Unfortunately, it can be a little bit crowded. Nevertheless, I highly recommend to visit this place!
