The Hedgehog waterfalls

Beautiful waterfalls in the heart of the Jura.

The Hérisson waterfalls are located in the department of Jura, the car is essential to get there. The entrance is free but the parking is not free! The price to park your car during the summer season is 5 euros for 4 hours. The access to the first waterfall (the most beautiful one) is easy then the path becomes steeper and more difficult. Be careful the path can be very difficult in case of bad weather conditions. The waterfalls are beautiful, if you visit the area it is a must.
