> The Waterfall Circuit at Le Mont-Dore
The Queureuilh, Rossignolet and Saut du Loup waterfalls are the gems of a ramble :'The Waterfall Circuit'. In this area, water is queen and flows all around you. (about 1.5 hours in length)

- The 20-metre high Cascade du Queureuilh flows down basalt columns.
- The Cascade du Rossignolet is a calcium formation, pouring forth the water from the Ruisseau de l'Enfer which eventually flows into the Dordogne.
- The 17-metre high Cascade du Saut du Loup, is particularly visible at the end of winter, when the snows melt.
