Join the deep gorges of Furon and the bubbling of its limpid waters. This haven of peace classified because of its ecological, faunistic and floristic interest gives a space of relaxation, discovery, freshness and conviviality.
After a departure from the old tram station, the hike becomes progressively wilder, reaching the Gorges du Bruyant (a site classified since 1977), then a picturesque path along the river Furon.
