The alpine waterfall near the village of Luceram in Provence, France is one of the many interesting sights to be seen when hiking through this area of the Alpes-Maritimes. The Grande Randonnee hiking trail crosses through the main street in Luceram and up the hilly village streets. The trail leads over the Col St-Roch at 991 meters and eventually down into the Vesuble valley.
