The Trail de La Chaussée des Géants is an Ardèche event organised every 1st Saturday in June by Trail enthusiasts and their playground … the Ardèche! The conviviality and family spirit of the event are highly appreciated. 10 km, 20 km and 51 km.
All the routes have less than 2 km of tarmac and are mainly single-track. You'll have the chance to use only rural and communal paths. We hope you enjoy the trails in the Ardèche.
Details on marking :
Follow the route of Les trois vallées (51km) in orange markings, through 3 valleys, to discover the peaks surrounding the town of Thueyts. The valley of Jaujac and its river Lignon, with its heights of Ladenne and Courcoussat but also through Mayres and the edges of the rock of Abraham.
Volcanoes, ridges, valleys, passes, forests will alternate over the course of some 51 km to give you a good view. The marking is permanent and can be practiced all year round. Be careful however in case of rain, it can be slippery on some parts of the course.
