Périod: from mid-June to mid-September
GR® 58 is a tour of the Queyras Regional Natural Park, located in the Hautes-Alpes. Over 130 kilometres, the hiker will cross deep gorges and, as in ancient times, will cross a high mountain pass through which so many migrants, pedestrians and goods have travelled...
Here, there are no rocky slopes before reaching the peaks, but sunny meadows, whose dazzling June bloom is known to all botanists.
During the Queyras trail, the hiker will not be directly confronted with high mountains but must nevertheless be able to evolve on several types of terrain. In these mid-mountain landscapes, he or she will contemplate larch forests, hamlets and villages, meadows, alpine chalets at the foot of rocky bars, lunar landscapes... Not to mention, of course, Saint-Véran, the highest municipality in Europe, perched at 2,040 metres, with its highest point at 3,175 metres, and the many marmots that the hiker will encounter along the way.
