About The HRP & GR5: June 27th-?

This summer, I’ll be hiking in France on the Haute Route Pyrenees and the GR5 (French Alps). The HRP is 500mi/800km route that traverses the Pyrenees range, which runs along the border of Spain and France, from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. The HRP is a mostly cross country route that takes the highest traverse of the Pyrenees between the more frequently hiked GR11 (in Spain) and the GR10 (in France). The GR5 that most hike is a 460mi/740km trail from Geneva to Nice/Mention in the French Alps paralleling the Italy border. It is a much more populated trail with many tourists because it is quite scenic, easier to access, and goes along a side of Mt Blanc. I think both hikes will be a nice balance for my first time hiking in Europe, and I am excited to spend some quality time in some mountains this summer. If there is time, I hope to add in the Hikers Haute Route in Switzerland.
