  • Nice piece to walk and to your picnic (rolls) to eat stones are sometimes somewhat smooth on some pieces. Flip flops, I should like to advise against! Also with sneakers to sometimes smooth.. Dog found it delicious.

  • Do if you love nature. Avoid too busy summer periods... Plan walking shoes. If you go from the top, the parking is free

  • 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.
