Petit Futé's opinion on WATERFALL CIRCUITS

Vintage plate 2020

Accessible on foot from the town centre, two bucolic waterfalls roar through the Mortain valley. And when you arrive here, a change of scenery is guaranteed: the bocage gives way, in some places, to low mountain landscapes - we speak of Norman Switzerland not without reason! The small waterfall is fed by the Cançon, which tumbles down the rocks at full speed and forms a narrow, white-water canyon, majestically pouring its waves into a curtain of lace forming a fascinating landscape. The Grande Cascade is the most important waterfall in the West. Its 25-metre waterfall impresses by its flow and its remarkable rocky setting. The path to the Petite Cascade has been laid out and leads to the Saint-Vital chapel hidden in its green setting and to the Rocher Brûlé, which offers a plunging view of the town. We then continue towards the Grande Cascade which falls down its Armorican sandstone bar. Here flows the Cance, a tributary of the Sélune. The flowering of rhododendrons at the end of May - beginning of June adds to its charm. The staircase that runs along it leads to a wooden footbridge that spans the river, and so you can fully enjoy this perpetual spectacle that changes with the seasons. The Tourist Office offers guided tours of these sites which reveal the popular local legends attached to them. Ask for information beforehand, as the place is sometimes very busy, especially in good weather.

site juste sublime
dépaysement total on en a pris plein la vue
Une belle promenade bucolique dans un écrin de verdure. Agréable l'été lorsqu'il fait chaud car le chemin est ombragé. Un peu "gras" l'hiver". Les deux cascades se font en moins d'une heure aller-retour. Pour tous les âges.
