  • If you decide to do the walk of the 7 waterfalls, plan good shoes (not necessarily of market, jogging suit). It should be noted than the 2nd and 3rd cascade (the 1st being "the range") must be earned: the climb is steep and difficult, then the slope softens and ascension turns into walk relatively shady and quiet. During prolonged dry periods, it can happen the last waterfall because there is more than a trickle of water flowing. You will have access by car on the road and then do not miss to visit the Boisselerie of the Hedgehog, Cave of Ali Baba of wooden objects. Good walk!

  • Very pretty waterfall not to miss if you're passing. The only downside is the parking off season rate. Free 20 eras minutes and from 21 th €3 and the I think it's an exaggeration! OK for a participation of site maintenance but €1,50 would widely enough.

  • A must see. Beautiful site. You take full eyes. Attention however to be well equipped for the trail is slippery despite the beautiful time. Some passages are a little sporty.

  • It is a place magical .he should stay the day to enjoy. The waterfalls are all different and especially to make the path proposed in the forest which is very nice with a lot fewer people and lush. Take the Variant.

  • Outstanding place, between the descent of the Hedgehog and its waterfalls and the belvedere of the White Lady, magical! Small rando made the 05.06.2017 in the late afternoon, a few people at the beginning and then no one after. I strongly advise this time slot to enjoy fully so this place is touristy en masse to the summer season. A place I would do it again in winter!

  • The 1st cascade (waterfall of the fan) is the closest and the most impressive. Nice place.

  • Excellent but even shod shoe hike ATTENTION it slide. This decreases the fun especially in the direction of the descent. Another negative point... TOO MANY PEOPLE. I think go back early in the morning. Dogs everywhere children people... cela spoil the landscape and pleasure. Kernes forest is very nice.

  • Born in 805 m above sea level, the Hedgehog is an often tumultuous water courses that started his career in a dazzling way. Visit the home of stunts with his projection of a documentary.
