Following in Stevenson's footsteps means living an adventure that is constantly renewed throughout the trail’s 252 km.
A link between Auvergne and Languedoc, the route followed by Stevenson (author of Treasure Island) is also a link between two cultures and two religions.
With or without a donkey, hikers first descend from the vast volcanic plateaus of the Velay to the rugged highlands of the Gévaudan. The floral richness is exceptional, and in spring the fields burst into a thousand colours.
Then come the bare hills of Mont Lozère, regularly marked with granite montjoies (cairns). The Cévennes country of the Camisards isn’t far. The landscape is filled with chestnut trees, mulberry trees and vines. The trip ends at the southern and industrial city of Ales.
