FFRP In 1993 the French hiking federation signposted the Stevenson trail from Le Monastier-sur-Gazeille to Saint-Jean-du-Gard. It was baptised the GR 70 on the French hiking network.

In order to make this historic trail more accessible, the Stevenson trail was later extended to Puy-en-Velay at the beginning and to Alès at the other end.


Teams of volunteers from three departmental hiking federations along the trail (Haute-Loire, Lozère, Gard) maintain the signposting: a big thank you to them all! balisageGR_p
The Federation is co-publisher, with Chamina, of the Topoguide, an essential tool for hikers which can also be used in conjunction with IGN 1/25 000 scale maps.
