/ Le Chemin de la Liberte - Freedom Trail
Our trip was written up here.
Great report, bought back some good memories. I see you met someone from Derby at the Cabane Subera - must be in the east Midlands blood, I'm from Nottingham! I decided to go all the way into Esterri on the last day but that was with the help of a couple of hitchs.
Would love to get your itinerary, have been wanting to do this walk for ages. Nest year might be the year...
There's a brief itinerary and map included in the new Rockfax climbing guide to Ariège due out next week - http://www.rockfax.com/climbing-guides/books/france-ariege-2012/
The info comes from my wife Anne, who's taken a number of client groups over different variations of the route in recent years. A little more info on http://www.chezarran.com/activity/walking.html too.
I'll ping it to you when I get back to work on Monday as it's a on the work pc
thanks John. For those keen to go there is a guide book by Scott Goodall who is an ex-pat who lives in the Ariege. He was very helpful with advice via email. The book is a must to use alongisde the map.
It's called The Freedom Trail: http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Freedom-Trail-Following-Pyrenees/dp/0954991001
