UPDATE 05/27/2024: The ground is too wet for the work to be carried out safely. Restoration of the pathway has therefore been postponed until weather conditions improve. The communauté de commune is aware of the urgency of the situation, and will treat it as a priority as soon as possible.
The by-law remains in force until further notice.

A beautiful climb in the forest on a steep path, where your sweats will be mitigated by the coolness of the waterfall. Bring good walking shoes, as the ground can be slippery!
