Although potentially less spectacular than the Grade Cascade, we adored the Petite Cascade walk with our dog although not easy walking with some quite steep rock steps. Charming and a nice walk on a hot day under shade.

The walk through the gorge in Mortain with the petite and grande cascade de Mortain is well worth doing, especially on a sunny day in Spring when the primroses and bluebells are in bloom. It is a mixed walk of forest, stream, rocky outcrops and...More
