GR70, Chemin de StevensonLe Puy - Alès, 272 km, 14 days

The GR70 is the route Robert Louis Stevenson followed with his donkey Modestine in 1878 through the Cévennes. His book was and still is widely popular. It is possible to redo the hike of Stevenson these days, with his book in your hands and the GR guide in your pocket, maybe with one of the numerous offspring of Modestine as your beast of burden.
