This trail through the Livradois Forez and Velay Regional Park will introduce you to the area south of the Forez Mountains.

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.
