    Can get busy in season, as it is well-known for its nice, relatively easy hike to a 60m natural waterfall through beautiful forests and rocky landscapes with breathtaking views over the bay of Porto Vecchio. About 1h30min return. Only the last 20m down to the water can be a difficult climb. tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g656497-d1982966-Reviews-Piscia_di_Gallu-Zonza_Corse_du_Sud_Corsica.html
    The Piscia di Gallo waterfall (in Corsican Piscia di u Ghjàddicu, literally "fir waterfall") is located on the border of Freto and Alta Rocca, at the bottom of the Oso Valley, in the municipality of San Gavino-di-Carbini, in Corsica.
    Contrary to popular belief and what the toponym of the IGN suggests, Piscia di Gallo does not come from the Corsican Piscia di Ghjaddu ("rooster's piss") but Piscia di u Ghjàddicu ("fir waterfall"). Access is by a path from a car park located just under a kilometer from Lake Ospedale.

    So down to the waterfall it is already difficult to climb. I would not call it family suitable (at least not for small children ...). But still very nice tour, absolutely rewarding.

    The descent to the waterfall requires surefootedness and good footwear!

    Super 👍
    Only the last 20 meters you have to climb properly

    The waterfall is worth seeing, but completely overcrowded. Not recommended in high season.

    Great waterfall. The last descent is challenging, the very last part of it you have to climb. Requires a head for heights and is not for small children, but even without climbing the very last part you have a good view of the waterfall.
