Le Tendon waterfalls

Posted by

Next to the village of LeTendon, not far from Gérardmer, you’ll find the highest waterfall of the Vosges. In the middle of a deep forest, the Scouet creek throws itself from an high of 35 meters and composes the Grande Cascade de Tendon, cut in 3 jumps. Not far, about 1 kilometer from it, it hutles down the rocks for this time to create la Petite Cascade de Tendon, less high but just as pretty. You can connect the two waterfalls by following a hiking trail through the woods. A nice stroll, quite easy, even with children. If you do not want to walk, horse-drawn carriage rides allow you to connect the two waterfalls. Upstream the Grande Cascade there is a pond with a cafe and a restaurant for refreshment. The perfect place to picnic.

For me, the best is to park at the Petite Cascade, hiking up the Grande Cascade. There you can have a coffee and come back.
