You are best to use a map in conjunction with the route markers. IGN, the French national mapping agency, has produced a series specifically for the national randonnée network. These are called TOP 100 maps. For even more detail go for the TOP 25 maps, which mark every little path and stream. You can buy them online directly from IGN, from outdoor shops or newsagents. Alternatively you can go to Géoportail, the French government interactive online map website and create your own route using several series of maps for free.

If walking between mid-September and the end of February, be aware that you could encounter a hunt in progress. You may feel more comfortable wearing a hi-viz vest during these months.
If the trail passes through forestry land be careful not to mistake forestry markers for trail markers. They are often on the same tree, but forestry markers are generally larger.
