The Dolce Via
The Eyrieux valley soft cycling trail
The Dolce Via is a 90 km gentle trail taking you all the way to the banks of the Eyrieux River and its well-preserved valley with stunning views ! The trail follows the route of an old local railway abandoned since 1968, and now provides a completely safe route from La Voulte-sur-Rhône to Le Cheylard, then Le Cheylard to Saint-Agrève and from Le Cheylard to Lamastre. Cycling with family, friends or for time out by yourself, enjoy picture-postcard landscapes and fresh, country air. Along the way are opportunities to have lunch on a restaurant terrace, relax at a shady café or picnic in the rocks. An invitation for ramblers to discover the countryside and its wild scents amongst green oaks, boxwoods and acacias, the many works of art, and to understand the agricultural and industrial past of this valley.
