Saint Martin d’Ardeche to Dieulefit


Leaving the buzzing river town of Saint Martin d’Ardeche, I had a long day to Viviers on the banks of the Rhone River. Like the previous few days, the terrain was less than spectacular. The first 27km to the village of Saint Montan was again on boring dirt roads through the dry and shrubby hills … Continue reading Saint Martin d’Ardeche to Dieulefit

Fagairolles to Le Vigan


After camping a few kilometers past Fagairolles, the first half of the day was spent making my way through a small valley to the village of Melagues. The way was not very exciting, but the village of Melagues was quite nice after the bland morning. The locals were gardening in the central vegetable gardens, and … Continue reading Fagairolles to Le Vigan

Carcassonne to Fagairolles


After a nice, but tourist dodging rest day in Carcassonne it was time to get back on the road. It took a while to get through the suburbs of Carcassonne, as the path followed the canal. I stopped for a few minutes to watch the boats go through the locks before continuing on through the … Continue reading Carcassonne to Fagairolles

After a rest day in Cortes de Pallas, my feet were not great and I was still tired, but thought I would push on. My goal was to get within 10km of El Rebollar, which would put me on pace to reach Chera the following day. The day started with a bunch of road walking … Continue reading Cortes de Pallas to Chelva

Calasparra to El Pinos


After visiting the Santuario Virgen de la Esperanza in Calasparra on my rest day, I had a long haul to Cieza the next day. The path followed the base of the front range leaving Calasparra, which was largely barren due to a recent fire. After exiting the burned section, it was nice to see pine … Continue reading Calasparra to El Pinos
