About : Trail running – The Meije Marathon

This challenging trail, mostly above 1600 meters high, follows the tracks of the 26km trail run but forks towards the Pic du Mas de la Grave Hut and up to the renowned Emparis Plateau. In September, this plateau looks like plaines of south America with its grass turning to gold and its blueberry bushes offering a marked contrast with its vivid red. A loop on this plateau will lead you to two different mointain lakes with a view on the Ecrins Range. To finish it all up, a long run down will bring you back to the starting point: La Grave.
