I have heard about mountian huts that dot trails in the Alps of France/Italy/Switz. I would love to be able to do a short backpacking trip (3-8 days) along one of these routes during my travels.

Has anyone done treks like this or know of a good resource where I can find maps or routes on these trails or locations of these mountian huts?

Thanks for your help!

Check out this site. I've walked a few short sections of the GR5 and it is really spectacular.
