Geology site description:

The Roche Trouée is a system of caves and caverns of which the entrance can be seen here. The cave system itself is closed to the public, but the site is definitely worth a short stop. There is an information panel describing both the karstic features and the valuable biodiversity surrounding the site (a.o. typical chalk grasslands with high botanical and faunistic values).
