Geocache Description:


Laissez votre voiture à Gonaincourt, le long du mur de la petite Eglise Saint-Martin (XVIIe) et prendre le chemin de randonnée qui monte vers la forêt.
Dans la grotte de la Bôve, on a trouvé des peintures rupestres (chevaux et bisons) qui, après datation, se sont révélée être des faux réalisés suite à la découverte de la grotte de Lascaux… Dommage…
Après avoir trouvé la cache, n’hésitez pas à aller vous balader dans le petit défilé rocheux : il est très agréable et il vous rafraîchira si vous venez en été.

Leave your vehicle at Gonaincourt, along the wall of the small church Saint-Martin (XVIIe) and take the hiking path in the direction of the forest.
In the Bove cave, you will find mural paintings (horse and buffalo). Unfortunately, after the analyses were made, they foundings were exposed as copies of another very famous french cave, La grotte de Lascaux. What a pity!
After you’ve discovered the cache, don’t hesitate to take a walk between this rocky gorge, it is very pleasant and it will refresh you during your summer visits.
