Start Trailwalker Oxfam journey today!
In the exceptional landscape of the Morvan, we have endeavoured to select the very best walking paths. For the 11th year of the Oxfam France Trailwalker, on May 16th & 17th 2020 we invite you to discover – or rediscover – the sublime forests, rivers and hills that the Morvan offers.
The morvan (Parc naturel régional du Morvan) is a low mountainous wooded area of 2,990 km2, spanning four French départements – la Côte d’Or, la Nièvre, la Saône et Loire et l’Yonne, and Bourgogne. The highest altitude is 900 metres in the south and 600 metres in the north.
In the Morvan, above all you’ll see the trees! The forest is everywhere, covering 45% of the total surface of the Park, including. harrdwoods (oak and beech) and softwoods (fir and spruce).
Water also has an important presence in the Morvan. The impermeable granite soil has created numerous waterfalls and swirling rivers (the Yvonne, Cure, and Cousin). The Park also has a multitude of lakes, ponds, streams and marshy areas, with more than 2,000km of watercourses in total.
The natural heritage of the Morvan is exceptional, with many remarkable animal and plant species, such as otters, mountain arnica and cranberries. Certain natural habitats such as the peat bogs and the ravine forests are very rare.
When discovering these ecosystems, it is essential to protect them. The Oxfam Trailwalker is dedicated to minimize the impact on the Park.
In the heart of Bourgogne, and perched on a rocky outcrop that dominates the Cousin Valley, the town of Avallon will seduce you with its charm and curiosities. A real entry point to the Morvan, the town has great pleasure welcoming the Oxfam Trailwalker.
Sport and territory are two important pillars for Yonne’s Conseil Déparmental, which corresponds well to Oxfam Trailwalker.
