St Guilhem Trails
From Cévennes to Mediterranean Sea
Situated in the southern part of Massif Central the Saint Guilhem trail crosses Aubrac plateau, the “Causses” and Cevennes, all the way to the Mediterranean sea. Listed in UNESCO world heritage these spacious territories remain unspoiled.
Originally the trail was a seasonal sheep migration. Each season shepherds drove their flocks from the dry Languedoc scrublands to the fresh green pastures of Aubrac. The trail was also a commercial route between the coastal planes of Montpellier and the great markets of Le Vigan and Cévennes. It then became part of the network of pilgrim trails linking Rome to Compostelle and took the name of William of Orange, then canonized as St Guilhem.
The southern leg of the trail from "Cévennes to the sea" will take you over 3-5 days from Le Vigan to Cirque de Navacelle, the Herault Valley, all the way to the medieval village of St Guilhem le Désert and its famous Cloister.
