Pissevieille, Cascade de (Saint-Claude)

Cascade de Pissevieille is a waterfall located near Saint-Claude in the Haut Jura. In summertime a really nice day trip with nice views and cool water.

Years ago we had vacation in the Jura and we wanted to visit some waterfalls. Beside the great cascade du Hérisson, Cascade de Pissevieille is one of the better waterfalls. Somehow I missed this one.

From the beautiful village of Saint-Claude (northwest of Geneve) it is a short drive to the waterfall over road D437 until you reach the hamlet La Rixouse. From here a trail starts descending to Cascade de Pissevieille.
