  • Sequence of cascade, on 2-3 km, full of bridges and markets, difficult to cross several places when there's world. Cool place, mother nature treats us by his creations.

  • 2 or 3 hours to walk along this small river called "Le Hérisson" Lots of waterfalls, small and medium ones. Visits are more interesting when there's water (automne, spring) A great escape in nature.
  • Magnificent view. Try to start from the top and go downwards to see the waterfalls in increasing size order. Worth it!
  • Stunning water falls to be visited in winter time for the plenty of waters spreading all over. My favorite water falls.
  • Joli balade à faire.
  • Beautiful waterfalls, I especially loved the second "the great leap" with hiking trail that passes behind the waterfall: A beautiful experience, but it really takes a good shower (bring spare clothes ;-)). The paths are well maintained, just like parking on arrival (attention, parking € 5 per car).
