The Urban V trail is a hiking route that starts in Nasbinals, Lozère, and ends in Avignon, in the Vaucluse department. Its approximately 330 km can be covered in about 12 days of hiking. You'll follow in the footsteps of William Grimoard, who later became Pope Urban V, the sixth pope of Avignon.

Your hike will start from the heart of the Aubrac, in Nasbinals and then continue through the Causses, then on to Florac. You'll pass near Mont-Lozère, in the Cevennes, where you'll cross Stevenson trail (GR 70), as far as Saint-Jean-du-Gard

And to finish your hike, you can admire the Pont-du-Gard before reaching the Rhône valley and the magnificent city of Avignon where you can enjoy the Papal Palace and its incredible architecture.
