It looks amazing, it is a very nice place to walk around. You have waterfalls visit and of course the caves. You may spend here about 3 hours enjoying the nature :)

See my other review of the grottes for a take on accessibility here - approx 20 mins from Besançon and worth the drive - but caution on the roadway approaches, and if the weather is at all rainy or snow or fog, then it's likely...More
