Far from any notion of pilgrimage, this GR® aims to introduce the life of Guillaume Grimoard, a native of Lozère who became Urban V, the 6th Pope of Avignon, in 1362. A historical pretext that enables walkers to explore the depths of varied and sumptuous landscapes. From Nasbinals, in the heart of Aubrac, to the City of the Popes in Avignon, 329 kilometres run from Lozère to Vaucluse, via the department of Gard.

An alternative to the Stevenson trail, which offers a full immersion in the Cévennes, exciting swimming opportunities and visits to captivating tourist sites.
