The Nyon waterfall

An easy hike from Morzine to admire the Nyon waterfall (cascade de Nyon in French)

The start of the hike is located in the centre of Morzine, it is very easy to find the start of the hike because you just have to follow the river that crosses Morzine: the Dranse. Then the path follows the the Dranse river. At the end you have to go up a little to see the top of the waterfall. The return is on the same way. A very beautiful hike to do if you are in the Morzine region.
