Take to the trails of this open valley full of woodlands and hamlets. Most of this itinerary is safe and free from motorised vehicles, giving you the chance to enjoy a pleasant, entertaining discovery of the local heritage and beautiful scenery.
Starts at the swimming pool car park. Take the Via Vercors cycle path towards Autrans. The track leads you to a small road. Turn right to travel via La Truite, turn right again, cross the D106 road, and rejoin the track on the other side, still heading towards Autrans. At the village, go via the centre and turn right at the square to reach the Claret site roundabout. Go left towards Le Cornet, then turn right towards Le Truc. At Le Truc, follow the signs to Le Bouchet. Follow the Via Vercors cycle path on a track that leads to the D106C road. Continue to Les Gaillardes. Stay on the Via Vercors which then goes left towards Les Arnauds, La Bourrière and Les Aguiards. Just after Les Aguiards, the itinerary goes off to the left. Stay on the track, straight ahead. At the first intersection, you can take a shortcut of about 4 km by turning right to head back to the village of Méaudre. Otherwise, go straight on via Les Girauds and Le Coin, then cross the D106, turning right, then left immediately after the bridge. Follow the waymarkers back to the village.
This itinerary crosses the villages of Autrans and Méaudre and explores the surrounding area. You'll find some fun places to stop along the way, with children’s play areas and family-friendly spots with viewfinders pointed at the summits, donkey rides, benches, etc. Picnic areas are also at your disposal with large, comfortable picnic tables made with local resources in a rustic style that invites togetherness. Don’t hesitate to take this opportunity to meet local farmers and craftspeople.

By applying a few basic rules we can all learn to co-exist, respectfully united by the Via Vercors spirit.

- Adapt your speed in the presence of livestock herds or farm machinery
- Many animal species are protected.
If you come across any wild animals, avoid frightening or disturbing them and do not try to touch them.
- Do not pick the plants or flowers, some of which are protected or threatened species.
- Do not light fires.
- Leave the site clean and take your rubbish away with you.
You’ll find recycle bins in all the hamlets.
- Keep dogs on a lead to avoid accidents and awkward situations.
- Be mindful of other users, be they mountain-bikers, horse-riders, local residents, walkers, farmers or foresters.

Politeness is very much appreciated among Via Vercors users and may well help you meet some interesting people!
