Rolampont - Faverolles

Types of moss

In the forest of Rolampont, the “tufière” lives and grows on the side of a north facing hillside, at the foot of fallen rocks covered by a beautiful beech and fern plantation.

The stream cascades down its naturally made steps covered in specific moss such as “crotoneuron”. The limestone settles continuously on the moss. Very crumbly when it is formed the tufa hardens to form this structure, masterpiece of nature, always changing in its space.

A section of this cavernous sedimentary rock shows the moss and all the vegetation around which it is formed.

Go back to the footbridge, continue straight on following the green and yellow markings and then take the stairs which will take you to the signpost « The fossilized tufa ».
