Ridge Hike, Cevennes Mountains, Southern France

This 13 kilometer Cevennes mountains loop hike starts with a steep climb to the top of a ridge above Mialet with pretty mountain and valley views. The trail then traverses the ridge tops, often through forest that obscures the mountain views, and ends up on the ridge on the opposite side of the valley before descending back down to the village.

The trail is generally well marked with yellow blazes. Between 5 and 6 the trail also follows the red and white blazed GR (grande randonnée) before splitting off at 6.

      Hi Whisks and Chopsticks, the thyme also has a wonderful fragrance as you walk through it. I have no idea why the stone are stacked. I looked on the internet but couldn’t find anything. I’ll have to ask someone local.
