The GR59 is a beautiful multiple day hike/trekking from St Maurice sur Moselle in the Vosges, through the Haute-Saône and the Jura to Izieu in the province of Ain in France.
It can be done as part of the extremely long GR5 or as a separate trekking.
The walks starts in St Maurice sur Moselle a small village in the Vosges mountain range at the foot of the Ballon d'Alsace. In the winter the village is also the base for ski-holidays.
The route leads you through beautiful landscape (with mountains, forest, wineyards) and nice villages and cities like Ronchamp (with the chapel of Notre Dame du Haut), Courchaton, Abbenans, Deluz, Besançon (birthplace of Victor Hugo), Quingey, Bracon, La Châtelaine in the Jura, Publy, Gevingey amongst many other places.
