    Arrival disappointing because too site frequented in summer. Parking fee 3euro the time... in the summer, little precipitation so little interest for the stunts. I think that this site reveals its charm in the spring and that the hike (that I have not made due to lack of time) must be worth the coup.pour Finally, a do but not in August.

    Places of exception especially after 2 days of rain. However site sliding mandatory walking shoes. Damage qu it is that parking on 5 which is paid. The best parking is the village of Bonlieu. Friendly pose with a regional beer. Essential site!

    The waterfalls are beautiful, but lack of water in this season, place too much frequented, we can't really enjoyed the scene when we do rush so there is crowd. I recommend but out of season

    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.

    Very nice site, to avoid high season because there are a lot of people and along the waterfalls and sometimes narrow path
