  • We went only to the cascade of the range by the waterfalls home because it is no longer accessible for now from the high order of the Mayor, but there is a way to see other less impressive cascades through the top

  • Visit to family in the late afternoon, unfortunately the waterfall was frozen at 3/4 but with a little imagination it feels how this place must be sublime with a normal runoff. Accessible trail, sublime small shop to the entered where there is for sure a souvenir wooden who sublimate his house of this passage in the Jura!

  • A site was discovered absolutely! Allow € 7 parking, the rest free. Provide essential walking shoes, slippery place, and close. Everything is secure. Only downside, the crowd. Starting very early in the morning to avoid the crowds is the go and return

  • Nice site with a fall on two floors that we had the chance to see partially frozen. Contrary to what shows the gps (and Google maps) the site is not a 1.4 km of the road but close to the small parking lot on which one can leave his car. A few minutes of descent to enjoy the ice stalactites hanging from the cliff that we enjoy even better with a ray of Sun skimming by late afternoon.

  • A fantastic family outing! The site is great. On the other hand, put on as a result and avoid too young children because it is long and very slippery!

  • If you pass in the Jura, you must visit these waterfalls to breathtaking! The main waterfalls are, from upstream to downstream:-jump Girard (35 m) - the jump of the forge - Château Gaillard - the big jump (60 m)-l' range (65 m) they are beautiful throughout the year, especially in the snow. The path is well maintained, laid out on the bridge by location, all in a true concern for preservation of the site. The place is quite crowded during the summer, but remains a place of beautiful hiking for all ages.

  • This site is simply outstanding. A ride that will make you discover the most beautiful cascades one than the other. Careful some parts are slippery.

  • A wonderful French destination. This magical place closer us to nature. One can reach the last waterfall after a very nice hike. Several paths are possible, and if we get a little, you can even visit natural caves. A great memory!
