Ain losing stream walk
For the River Ain, life begins 700 meters above sea level, near Nozeroy, where water emerges calmly from the depths in the form of a karstic spring.
In summer or winter, the spring is easy to reach from the car park (about 200 metres away) via a pictureseque woodland footpath.
But depending on the season and weather conditions, the spectacle is different every time.
When it rains heavily, the swollen spring quickly produces an impressive flow which can even become dangerous! During periods of drought, on the other hand, the spring dries up, leaving behind an enormous gaping cavity, much to the delight of potholers.
This is a nice refreshing walk to do in the heat of summer, when the cool water and the shady forest invite you enjoy a breath of fresh air!
