This guidebook describes 70 mountain walking routes in the Écrins National Park in south east France. Easily reached from Grenoble, the Massif des Écrins is one of the most spectacular regions in all the Alps. Most of the area is a national park, containing bold mountains hung with glaciers, and more than 100 summits over 3000m high. The park offers a profusion of alpine flowers, and romantic old villages and hamlets huddle in the valleys.
This is mountain country par excellence, but hundreds of kilometres of well-marked trails and a network of alpine huts make it accessible to walkers. The highest peaks form a block at the very heart of the range, with a diverse assortment of valleys surrounding or spreading from it – Vallée de la Romanche, Vallée de la Guisane, Vallée de la Vallouise, Valgaudemar, Valjouffrey and Vallée du Vénéon. For this second edition of the guide, Kev Reynolds has chosen the best routes from each of these valley bases. This guide describes 70 full- and half-day walks in France’s largest national park, suitable for all experienced walkers, from alpine novices to experts, with useful information on refuge accommodation and all other aspects of walking in the region.

About the Author:

Kev Reynolds is a freelance writer, photojournalist and lecturer. A prolific compiler of guidebooks, his first title for Cicerone Press appeared in 1978; he has since produced 27 titles for Cicerone, with others being researched. A member of the Outdoor Writers' Guild, the Alpine Club and Austrian Alpine Club, his passion for mountains and the countryside remains undiminished, and he regularly travels throughout Britain to share that enthusiasm through his lectures.

Review:

'The book will be invaluable to those visiting the area for the first time and wanting a one, two or more centre walking holiday, rather than moving on day by day along a long distance trail. The work is of the usual high standard now expected of Britain's most prolific guidebook writer to the Alps. There is plenty of information about the area and the book is well illustrated with both colour and black and white photographs, which demonstrate the beauty of this superb region of the French Alps.' (Alan Castle, Strider) 'This guide covers the five main valleys of the Ecrins ... and describes 70 of the best walks in the region...aimed not only at the experienced Alpine walker, but also at the active hill-walker visiting the Alps for the first time.' (High)
