Cascade de Vegay

Waterfall in France: Cascade de VegayCascade de Vegay is a waterfall east of Aiglun in the region Alpes/Alpes Maritimes, France.

Cascade de Vegay is located along road D10, east of Aiglun. Cascade de Vegay is visible from the roadside but it is also possible to hike to the base of the waterfall, a nice place for a refreshing shower with warm weather.

From Aiglun there is a small road (gps 43.854288, 6.919538) heading to the river L’Esteron. Only problem: there is no parking. A hundred meters further there is a pocket in the road.

Another option (maybe better) is to drive from Vascognes to Pont de Vegay and park the car here (gps 43.853259, 6.931566). From the parking the walk to cascade de Vegay is shorter, appr 30 minutes (1,6 kilometer).
