Initiated over 10 years ago, the Trail of the Giants’ Causeway was created by a local association of 9 trail enthusiasts (and Ardèche lovers!). As a friendly sports competition, the trail attracts thousands of participants every year, both beginners and experienced, to test the 3 routes offered during the event. Accessible to all, it offers three routes: La Gravenne (10km), le Ranc Qualiou (20km), and les 3 vallées (51km), which can be done either as a hike or a run (for the most courageous among us). The different routes are permanent, allowing both newcomers and experienced hikers to explore the incredible natural panoramas of the Monts d’Ardèche, the surroundings of the Devil’s Bridge, the Abraham Valley, and the heights of the picturesque village of Jaujac and the banks of the Lignon River.
The Gravenne route, marked in green, will take you through the heart of the picturesque village of Thueyts, around the White Cross, and then ascend to its heights by following the volcanic ridges of this volcano between Thueyts and Montpezat. The route will also take you towards Prat de Berland, Ranc Qualiou, and the hamlets of Sableyre-bas and Dardet before finally completing your loop back to your starting point in the village.
