More info about Hiking in Vosges:

Vosges is both the name of a French department and the name of a range of low mountains located in eastern France, very close to the border with Germany. The mountain range is divided into the Higher Vosges, Middle Vosges and Lower Vosges and the Grand Ballon (1424m) is its highest peak. Hiking and trekking itineraries abound around here and snowshoeing is also quite popular during the winter months.
