Dominated by the Testavoyre, its highest peak culminating at an altitude of 1,436 metres, the Meygal massif is located in the heart of Velay, in Haute-Loire. This unspoilt territory is made up of dozens of sucs, the famous small, dormant volcanoes shaped like sugar loaves.
Covered by a vast forest, the Meygal is an ideal place for hiking in summer. A pleasant 13-kilometre trail starting at Queyrières invites you to take a tour. From the top of the Testavoyre, which is easily accessible to walkers, there is a superb view of the surrounding sucs and Mount Mézenc!
For runners, the Espace Trail du Meygal, the first permanent trail running space in Haute-Loire, offers eight marked circuits for different levels of ability, surrounded by splendid scenery.
In winter, a Nordic ski area ranging from 1,200 to 1,400 metres in altitude offers 44 kilometres of marked pistes and is a great place to enjoy snow sports: cross-country skiing trips and snowshoe walks in a magnificent forest setting are sure to enchant you!
