I have been to Chatel a lot. I have spent a good bit of time there in winter, but this spring it was really not very wintery down in the valley. Staying with Paul and Fi from the Rider Social in Chapelle d’Abondance I had time to kill so went for a hike to stretch the legs. I saw a sign for “La Cascade” so followed the signs and soon enough came across the waterfall. It was hard to miss. The walk goes up the steep hillside following the stream. There are a bunch of smaller waterfalls further up the hill. Once you get further up the trees thin out offering views across the valley.
