Cascade de Courmes - Gorge du Loup by 

The narrow and beautiful Gorges du Loup cuts north-south through the hills at the foot of Gourdon, 12 km from Grasse.

The D2210 road along the forested edge of the hills runs from Châteauneuf-Pré-du-Lac (near Grasse) through Le Bar-sur-Loup, Pont-du-Loup, Tourrettes-sur-Loup and Vence.

Down in the bottom of the valley at Pont-du-Loup, where the little D6 road turns off to go up through the gorge, you see Gourdon perched on the cliffs high above, and the tall pillars of the bombed-out railway viaduct crossing the valley in a curve. About 4 km up the deep valley, the Cascade de Courmes Waterfall comes down over a notch in a long feather of water blowing in the nearly constant wind. The water then spills over large mossy boulders into the pool, 40 m below the top.
