Guidebook: Tours du Mont Lozère et du Causse Méjean (in French)
Climbing to a height of 1,700 m, the granite Mont Lozère rolls out its bare peaks. A cattle breeding area and summertime grazing site, it’s also the water tower of the Lozère: springs and streams feed the basins of the Tarn, the Lot and the rivers on the Mediterranean side.
The GR (hiking trail) 68 provides the path for a tour of this massif. It leads, from Villefort, by the slopes of the northern face, towards Bleymard and Bagnols-les-Bains. It joins the Col de la Loubière, then descends to Florac via the limestone ridge of the Eschino d'Ase. From Florac, it crosses the wooded massif of Bougès to the Col de la Croix de Berthel and then reaches Villefort. With a wide variety of landscapes, it crosses through many hamlets and villages.
This superb route introduces you to the many facets of this Cévennes mountain. From the great forests with their slopes covered with Scotch broom and heather, the landscapes give way to large open steppes and breath-taking views of the Cévennes National Park.
