  • Positive I hiked from Volvic to Aydat and it was beautyful. On this trail you follow the Puy de Dome wich is a chain of volcans. There are not to many villages and streets to cross. The nature and the views are awsome! I loved it.
  • Negative It is difficult to get ressuply. You can stay in Gites d'etapes but there are nearly no campings to stay (only sauvage). To quit the trail there a few options to get a bus to bigger cities (--> hitch hiking)
