With its 840 km of signposted hiking trails, the Trièves offers you magnificent itineraries from village to village, to the summits of the Vercors and the Dévoluy and across wide uninhabited nature.

Walk along the shores of Lake Monteynard-Avignonet and traverse the impressive Himalayan footbridges. Drive through the countryside from village to village, and discover the local heritage and agriculture. From the mountainside to the summits, traversing the Hauts-Plateaux Nature Reserve, explore the Dévoluy and Vercors massifs. Enjoy the simple pleasures of this “land of natural balance”: the rejuvenating green of spring, the freshness of an early summer morning, the splendid autumn colours or the invigorating winter air. In every season, the Trièves offers a diversity of landscapes that hiking allows you to fully appreciate, whether you are a casual walker or an experienced pro.

Breathtaking Landscapes

The richness of the Trièves is in the variety of its landscapes: from the shores of Lake Monteynard-Avignonet to the summit of the Grand-Veymont, passing through villages, the mountain pastures, the ridges of the Eastern Balcony of the Vercors or the slopes of the Obiou. The mountains are accessible to all: every visitor should be able to find the ideal hike among our itineraries. To take in the sights, we recommend several small summits that offer incredible views of the contrasting landscapes of the Trièves, such as Châtel, Goutaroux, Ménil, Platary or the Côte-Rouge.

Nature’s Riches

Ibexes, marmots, vultures: take your binoculars with you when you hike up the mountains to observe the wealth of fauna in the Trièves. You will also appreciate our abundant flora during your hikes. Crocuses, orchids, primroses, gentians: Spring positively blooms with the variety of wild flowers to spot. The Vercors Plateaux Nature Reserve, located in the heart of the Vercors Park, is the largest nature reserve in mainland France with 17,000 hectares. A research centre for biodiversity, it shelters and conserves a rich flora and fauna, as well as the reintroduction of some species. Please be particularly respectful of the regulations posted on your hikes to preserve this exceptional natural heritage.
