The footbridge of the Drac River


A hike with a sense of adventure, that will surely give you a rush, with bright colours, in the heart of a Mediterranean-like landscape.
Loop : 1h45
Start : Savel
Difficulty : easy

This loop crosses the beach of Savel, on the banks of the Lake of Monteynard Avignonet, one of the best lakes in Europe for windsurfing. The path then runs in the pastures bordering the turquoiseblue curves of the lake to reach the vertiginous Himalayan footbridge of the Drac River. In the background, the foothills of the massif of Vercors are keeping watch. From Savel , follow Mayres Savel via La Chapelle, Le Pont, La Tourbe, then downhill up to the Passerelle du Drac . Take the return bath following Chardeau . In Chardeau , follow the road to Savel , via La Traverse, Les Mets, La Tourbe, Le Pont and La Chapelle . From Chardeau , you can go to Mayres Savel and its Romanesque church, classified as a historic monument.
For a surprising hike, between earth and water, cross the lake in the morning on board the boat “La Mira”, and walk along the South side of the lake via the footbridge of the Ebron River, and then via the footbridge of the Drac River.
