Leaving Sourdeval you enter very pretty country: the area around Mortain is surrounded by woods and here, amidst tranquil, shaded surroundings in a deep, green-wooded gorge, the waters of Cance and Cancon cascade to create waterfalls. Mortain also hosts a memorial to the heroism of the defenders of Hill 314.

The greenway gradually makes its descent towards the Bay – be sure to enjoy the countryside of the distinctive ‘bocage’ hedged farmland before going down.  Take care when crossing the RD 911 to the south of Sourdeval (poor visibility on the bend), and again when crossing the RD 977 (though this is better developed, with good visibility).

The ‘Cascades de Mortain’ waterfalls (‘Little’ and ‘Large’) are an ideal location to take a refreshing stroll.

Views over Mont-Saint-Michel. The regional national park of Normandy-Maine is close by.

Mortain Waterfall

At the hillside town of Mortain, the River Cance slices through rocky gorges down to the wooded basin of the Sélune river, creating the two spectacular sets of waterfalls with scenic walks and picnic spots alongside. The mightiest – “La Grande Cascade” - is the largest waterfall in the north and west of France.
