Piscia di Gallu, Zonza

4.2
#3 of 9 in Things to do in Zonza
One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Corsica, Piscia di Gallu is quite spectacular at a height of 60 m (196 ft). You can descend the trail fully equipped with handrails, or you can adventure on the old tourist trail along the cascades down to the plateau overlooking the creek. There is a good swimming spot in the pool right at the throat of the river where the waterway narrows. Less than a mile from the Ospédale Dam, the trail crosses a ford where you can cross the river on foot, before it flows into the open landscape overlooking the river that feeds the falls.

    Nice, not difficult walk except arriving near the cascade slope and average rise. To advise preferably early in the morning.

    Beautiful! Landscape breathtaking. But the end is sporting with 2 children, 5 and 8 years... mandatory sneakers.

    The Ballad is beautiful with very beautiful view. But the end is quite steep, not come in flip-flops or sandals, as has too often been along the route! and attention with children! It takes 1 h 30 of ballads so you you stop often to take pictures! parking (4 euros) but I'd rather put that price for a ride like this rather than the 5 euros from the parking lot to the beach of St. giulia!

    You won't expect that waterfall after you've seen the little pools before above it. Although the waterfall is not directly accessible, the road that brings you there goes over hot rocks, through a nice smelling pine forest, over a river and from there on you can choose to go either down to the little swimming pools or straight up to the famous rock and view over the sea and coastline. And it is absolutely worth the hike! Take a break in the shade underneath the trees, because from here on it's downhill all the way, supported by a little line to hold on to while stepping down towards the view over the waterfall. Enjoy the moisture in the little valley because the way back is hot and high. Last part only recommended for people, kids and dogs who can climb rocks and aren't afraid of heights.

    Beautiful place

    Very nice hike, easy on the first part of the course that leads to a plateau where the view is superb. The descent to the waterfall is more difficult but still quite passable. However, the marked trail stops at mid height of the waterfall approximately and the rest is at the own risk of the hikers. The path seems not unworkable but swimming is prohibited in the river the interest is initially limited. Approximately 45' go and as for the return. Many water points where it is tempting (but not allowed because of possible releases from the dam) to cool off on the way.

    Very nice ride to the heart of the forest, however the last part to access the waterfall is really difficult, is more a trail but rocks down. Provide an hour's hike for the less energetic, like me. Once there, it was worth, the waterfall is beautiful, but there is little place to land to enjoy the show! The rise is even more difficult, but if I did it, anyone can do it 😉

    Easy walk to the waterfall, then if you want to get off, the difficulty increases in important ways. Route suitable for families with small children except the final part. Possibility to swim in the natural pools 4 Car Parking euro
