Long Description:
Deep in the valley of the river "Dranse de Morzine" in the village "La Vernaz" a interesting place is located. The "Devil's Bridge Gorges" is s gorge in the french alps, which is accessible for visitors.

Deep in the gorge an enormous block, forming an arch above the "Dranse" is itself also a collapsed rock; it is the one people call "Le Pont du Diable" (the Devil's Bridge). Once it was used to cross the river by the habitants of Le Jotty and La Forclaz, who used to take the path you can still distinguish on the side of the rock. This short-cut saved them a 4-kilometre detour via the Bioge bridge.
