Description

This trail through the Livradois Forez and Velay Regional Park will introduce you to the area south of the Forez Mountains. From Craponne-sur-Arzon, head for Pontempeyrat and the railway viaduct. You then arrive at Saint Pal-en-Chalencon, a medieval town standing on a rocky escarpment. Next, you make your way towards Boisset, before leads down towards Laprat. At the village of Triolaire, take a detour to see the impressive Bourianne “larva flow”. You will then arrive at Saint-André-de-Chalencon. The castle there is built on a steep peak and is well worth a visit. Soon you will catch sight of the Roche-en-Régnier castle keep. A gently rising stretch of land will bring you to the village of Saint-Pierre-du-Champ, then to Saint-Georges-Lagricol. Lastly, you take the D9 road to Craponne-sur-Arzon.
