    The “Cascade” route (the sportive one) goes off to the right, along the lovely Cascade de la Fare waterfall. The “Passerelles” route (the easy one) keeps to the left and features two bridges before reaching the top of the “Cascade” route. The two routes then join together for the final section. The walk back to the car park takes around 1 ½ hour.
