A rather cool stroll in all seasons to discover "La Furieuse", known for its violent floods. Here it takes on the appearance of a small secret torrent at the bottom of an unsuspected wooded valley ...

This 25km river has many environmental and historical interests. Bordered by wet meadows and woods, it acts as a passage for wildlife between Lake Paladru and the Isère valley. Its artisanal, industrial and working history is very rich since the Middle Ages and still survives today with the Aciéries de Bonpertuis. This route will also make you admire the Pont du Boeuf viaduct inaugurated on July 12, 1857, 45 m high with its 16 arches in the center.
At the end of the walk, take advantage of the orientation table to contemplate the view of the Chartreuse, Belledonne and Vercors mountains.

Additional information : Shops near the station Sheltered by steep hillsides and abundant vegetation, the Val de Fure is a natural area sheltered from the heat.
