This is a beautiful hike that takes place mainly on or near the crests of the Hautes Vosges. Despite the dense forest cover, the route offers some fine views of the Alsatian and Vosges slopes, including the St-Dié basin. You'll also come across a number of remarkable rocks, which you'll need to be careful around.
The first Tree of Liberty was planted in 1918 by the Americans to symbolize the liberation of Alsace. During the Second World War, it was used by smugglers as a landmark for prisoners escaping from occupied Alsace to free France.
