Hike starting from Virieu-le-Grand leading to the impressive Clairefontiane waterfall.

Hike to discover the historic center of Virieu-le-Grand by going up the Arène river to the majestic Clairefontaine waterfall located in the forest. Unlike some other waterfalls, the flow of Clairefontaine never stops, even during periods of drought.

From the centre of Virieu-le-Grand, follow Route d'Hauteville to the Chemin de Clairefontaine. You can cut the hairpins that wind up to the foot of the waterfall. The circuit then crosses the Chanille bridge before splitting into two more or less direct return options.

This hike can be downloaded on the free app Ain Outdoor.
