Between forests and stubble fields
Come and discover the Vosges massif throughout its numerous marked trails by the Vosges Club. Rectangle, ring, diamond or disc, red, blue, yellow or green, you'll see them all along the paths! Each sign gives you information about the route taken or to be taken: find out the meaning of these markings here.
Slip on your hiking shoes and weave through the paths for a few kilometers! You will enjoy beautiful mountain landscapes, its prairies, its lakes, its wildlife and its plant life.
Some advice: Be equipped with an IGN map (Institut géographique national - French national cartographical organization) in order to follow the marked paths.
Some advice before leaving :
- Think about looking at the weather forcast or at our webcams, updated every 10 minutes.
- Don’t overestimate your abilities, choose a path that is adapted to your level.
- Think about bringing warm clothes, the trails are sometimes in the shade and in high altitude, temperatures could get cold even in the summer !
- Think about having the right shoes. Good hiking shoes are recommended to flip-flops or city shoes!
- Finally, be environmentally responsible, think about collecting your trash. The wildlife and the plants will be all the more better for it!
ADOPTING THE QUIETUDE ATTITUDE
Good hiking habits :
- I give preference to the Club Vosgien (or FFRP) signposted routes.
- When hiking in a group, I keep quiet.
- If I am going to be walking for several days, I prefer to stay overnight in a refuge or hostel.
