  • Simply an awe inspiring sight! The Source is huge with masses of ice cold mountain water spilling up and cascading down in bright and rushing waterfalls on the first miles of the river. Do some hiking along the path, it's definitely worth the sights
  • The source of the Loue is an ideal setting for a Sunday stroll, calm and freshness allows to relax... Beware the descent is very steep, plan on good shoes, and for the back you can take small breaks in the Café...

  • The best memory I have of the Doubs! Beautiful site, feels little at the foot of this mountain. Accessible to all (600 m walk, our boy of 3 years to able to climb alone on foot) visiting the site and parking is free and more! THE site has to do if you are in the area
