Ecrins National Park is accomplished walker Kev Reynolds’ Cicerone guide to the walking opportunities in this dramatic region of the French Alps. The guide covers the entirety of the National Park, the Massif des Ecrins containing mountains hung with glaciers and more than 100 summits over 3000m high. Many of the walks also journey through landscapes of alpine flowers and old villages and hamlets strewn through valleys. While some of the walks Reynolds includes are challenging, the hundreds of kilometres of well-marked trails and a network of Alpine huts makes it accessible to walkers of many standards.

The guide is organised into 5 main sections - the Vallee de la Romanche, Vallee de la Guisane, Valleede la Vallouise, Valgaudemar and the Vallee du Veneon - detailing a total of 70 walking routes using valley base-camps as the starting point. Each route has an Information Box with details of difficulty grading, total distance, height gain, time and general location. In the course of the route descriptions there are also suggestions for tracks leading off from the main walk. A detailed introduction gives practical guidance on accommodation, getting there, weather, a suggested equipment list and recommended maps in addition to information on the Valleys of the Ecrins and the Parc national des Ecrins. Detailed route descriptions are accompanied by colour sketch diagrams mapping the route as well as colour photographs illustrating dome of the picturesque highlights of the region.
