Trail shared by F Felix

One of 10 segments of the GR6 hiking route. Many sections of this long-distance trail are great for MTB, too.

Features -none-

Like most shrub and forest in the south of France, the wilder sections of this route can close for fire danger in the summer.

Need to Know

As this is a designated hiking route, be courteous to walkers.

Description

The Grande Randonnée (GR) is a network of long-distance footpaths in Europe, mostly in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain. The trails in France alone cover approximately 60,000 kilometres (37,000 mi). Trails are blazed with characteristic marks consisting of a white stripe above a red stripe. These appear regularly along the route, especially at places like forks or crossroads. As much as is reasonable, GRs avoid pavement while taking in interesting villages, historic sites, and natural areas. For instance, this GR6 trail segment actually leads you across the stunning Pont du Gard, and beside its excellent swimming hole on the Gardon River.

This mapped route shows one of ten segments of just the GR6. Sections of this particular trail segment that are especially good for mountain biking pass through undeveloped hilly areas near Aubarne, Gorges du Gardon Natural Reserve, Pont du Gard, Sernac, Abbaye Saint-Roman, and Les Alpilles Regional Natural Park. These segments can be linked together with adjacent singletracks and fire roads to create more challenging and localized MTB itineraries. These link-ups, rather than the familiar US system of dedicated MTB trails, is how MTB usually works in France (except with lift-assist, purpose-built trails in ski resorts).

Between the wilder areas, many of the dirt and gravel sections of this GR6 segment are useful for accessing MTB trails and terrain without having to ride on busy main roads with cars.
