  • The source is superb with its autumn colors and the circus that surrounds it. A must see if you go in the region.

  • This place is a little mystical... the water out of the rock, and after a good rain that is even more intense! It's really beautiful! I like also this side almost confidential... a moment of healing. When we went it was only us! It's a little selfish but we really enjoy loneliness in this kind of place!

  • Visiting this site is part of the essential places to visit in Franche-Comté and in the Doubs. Cradle of the Wyvern you will discover sumptuous decorations. Without hesitation we can just go visit the source or go a little lower to find the jump of the Loue. 3 hiking trails are accessible from the source.

  • 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
