Geocache Description:




 


FRANCAIS

La cascade se situe dans la vallée de Thann / St Amarin. A partir de Kruth, prendre la D13b1 en direction du col d'Oderen et de Ventron. Au bout de 1,5 km environ, la chapelle se trouve sur la gauche. Le haut de la cascade débute derrière la chapelle et un sentier permet de suivre sa descente vers la vallée.

La chapelle saint-Nicolas est située à près de 600 m d'altitude, dans le vallon sauvage de la Werschmatt.
La date de sa première construction n'est pas bien connue mais c'est sans doute l'un des sanctuaires les plus anciens de la vallée de Saint-Amarin.
Son histoire est associée à celle du vallon de la Werschmatt, qui constitue, depuis des siècles, un axe de passage très fréquenté vers le col d'Oderen et le versant lorrain du massif vosgien.
Attention sentier glissant en période automne/hiver.
