The Taillard forest

In the shadow of the giants

Walks to discover the largest forest of the Pilat Regional Natural Park

A forest in heritage

The Taillard forest stretches over three departments: Loire (42), Ardèche (07) and Haute-Loire (43) and has two long-distance hiking trails which intersect across it: the mythical GR 65, the European route to Santiago de Compostela, and the GR 7 (from Macon to Castelnaudarry), a total of 10 km in the middle of the forest which can be walked or as a trail run!

Finally, the Viafluvia offers a beautiful bike ride at the foot of this beautiful forest area.
