GR / GRP / PR Trail Description
The Grande Randonnée (French), is a network of long-distance footpaths in Europe, mostly in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain. In France alone, the trails cover approximately 60,000 kilometres (37,000 mi). The trails are blazed with characteristic marks consisting of a white stripe above a red stripe. These appear regularly along the route, especially at places like forks or crossroads. In France, the network is maintained by the Fédération Française de la Randonnée Pédestre (French Hiking Federation).
