Areuse Gorge

Recommended
Head off from Noiraigue station. After the hydro plant, the path follows the course of the Areuse. Harnessed by hydroelectric engineers, the river runs along the bottom of a wooded V-shaped gorge below craggy limestone cliffs. Halfway along, a viewpoint overlooks an impressive sheer face at the most jagged section of the gorge with its waterfall; the additional factor of an old humpbacked bridge known as the Saut-de-Brot makes this a romantic spot.
