Little Sark only has one dirt road and the path leading down to Rouge Terrier is at the very end of it. With no other way to go than down or back on yourself, this really is the end of line.
The trail meanders along the cliff side before leading you into a private sheep grazing field. Having diagonally crossed the length of the field you then begin the descent to Rouge Terrier. The path becomes steeper until there is no path, only iron rods stuck into the earth with ropes attached to help you lower yourself down.
At the bottom you will find the remnants of an old ladder and railing fixed to the rocks. At high tide it is possible to swim off these rocks but visitors must beware of the fast current that runs between the mainland and La Brénière islet. At low tide it is possible to scramble down from Rouge Terrier to explore La Brénière, its small beach and its natural cave.
Additionally, there is a wonderful view from Rouge Terrier looking back upon Sark
, Dixcart Bay
and La Jaspellerie, a grand house that sits upon the headland overlooking Dixcart
