Cascade de Baumicou (sometimes written as cascade de Beaumicou) is a nice waterfall near Vernon (Sanilhac) in the Ardèche region, France.
From Aubenas drive to Joyeuse (road D104). Just before Joyeuse take the exit (D303) to Vernon – 5 km. Best thing you can do is to drive to the town hall (Maire) at gps 44.507505, 4.220989. Park your car here.
There should be signs. The walk takes you to the river and the «tétines” de Vernon. A beautiful site also referred as the Gorges de l’Ardèche. The walk should take appr. 20 minutes.
The waterfall is free accessible but the trail is closed on Saturday mornings from October to Februari due to hunting!!!
Cascade de Baumicou isn’t a very tall waterfall, I think 8 meter, but very nice to see. You can walk behind the drop.
Note: in summertime the river probably runs dry. Best time to visit cascade de Baumicou is a rainy period or a long time of rainfall.
