This step begins to slowly feel the end of your adventure. You cross very quietly a forest massif, from the banks of the Escoutay to Saint-Montan. All of this along a rolling course, with a low gradient and a short distance.
Your arrival in Saint-Montan will take on the appearance of a cinema studio with…December 26, 2022

One could say that this stage is placed under the sign of the cross. Beyond the joke, there is a truth since the path is dotted with religious sites that are part of the history of Provence. You will come across maintained ruins of former priories or abbeys including that of Aiguebelle which is beyond…December 26, 2022

If you had one foot and one eye in Provence on the final stages, this 32nd day definitely plunges you into this fragrant and colorful environment. An indisputable clue: lavender plantations are appearing.
But that's not all, you will cross a forest area of the Regional Natural Park of Baronnies Proven…December 26, 2022

This step offers you a little extra effort compared to the original route. The idea is to take you to the heights of the Saint-Maurice mountain which faces the foothills of the Saou forest. You will then enjoy an absolutely splendid view and an environment labeled Sensitive Natural Area.
This area of…December 26, 2022

During this stage, you enter the confines of the Saou forest, via the eastern tip. You arrive from the north, at the end of a beautiful ascent and turn off towards the east along a ridge, and taking the Pas des Auberts to the Rocher de la Laveuse.
From there, you descend into the sort of hollow plate…December 26, 2022

This stage is slightly revisited compared to the original route. Rather than going directly in the direction of the incredible and very unique forest of Saou, I prefer to take you in the direction of Saillans.
Thus, you will ensure accommodation, without having to accumulate too many kilometers in a single…December 26, 2022

The program for this stage is packed: 22 kilometers and 960 meters of elevation over 13 kilometers of ascent through the Diois massif.
This stage is also and again breathtaking views. The Hexatrek does not know how to do otherwise and besides, we never tire of looking at these surrounding mountains, from…December 23, 2022

In the sounds of the village names, in the architecture of the abbeys that line the route, in the vegetation and the scents, your adventure begins to take on the accent of the south.
During this stage you will follow the south-west slope of the mountain of Glandasse. This massif is protected by the Sensitive…December 23, 2022

On this 26th stage, you have already put the Écrins, Belledonne and now the Vercors behind you, the southern entrance of which you can still admire via the Cirque d'Archiane. From there, it's on to the Baronnies Provençales, the smells of lavender and a more Mediterranean climate.
To reach Châtillon-en…December 23, 2022
Your adventure is coming to an end, but everything is done to make you want to continue the Hexatrek on the Gorges et Causses section. Indeed, your arrival on the banks of the Ardèche closes 35 days of spectacular scenery but opens with the entrance to the Nature Reserve of the Gorges de l'Ardèche.
