The guidebook of the chemin de Saint Guilhem appeared in 2009 from an idea of the Départemental hiking committee of Lozère and the Gard. (creators : Allain Bastide and Philippe Chambon). The chemin de Saint Guilhem™ has been kept on as the walking part of the Long Hiking Trails crossing the Massif -Central > From volcanos to the sea.
The FFRandonnée, with its 200 000 members and its 20 000 volunteers, insure the upkeep and sustainability of a network of 65 000 km of GR (Grande Randonnées, = Long Hiking Trails) and GR de Pays (GRP) just as 115 000 km PR (Promenades et Randonnées = Walking and Hiking Trails). This makes, in total, a network of 180 000 km recognised and maintained by some 6000 volunteer signal posters who are members of the Federation. Recognised on a national level by the ministries of sports, ecology and tourism, it is also a member of the National Olympic Sporting Committee. It organises an eco-watch of the state of the paths by teams from the associations and local committees.
