More of a workout than a scenic mountain hike. Steep ascent and descent through forest - fairly monotonous. But where views are possible very beautiful.

A beautiful hike, in particular when there is snow around the lake. It's worth continuing to col d'Anterne for the view of Mont Blanc

My study abroad group took a weekend trip to Annecy, France. Looking for local hikes, I found this one. The view was worth the steep ascent!

Fantastic views! We left at about 8 PM and were at the top at 9:30. We had scenic views of the city the whole way up, and were surprised by the historical preservation. Yes, a lot of stairs, but absolutely worth the climb. It is also possible to take the gondola up to the top for fairly cheap (6 euros for students) but I would suggest climbing up if you have the chance.

This is an easy relaxing trail along a beautiful river south east of France. I use to do it once or twice a year, when the weather is not good enough to go in the near Jura or Alpin mountains, and it is only 40mn from Lyon. We can see a few fishermen, cyclists, runners, and family hikers. There are places to stop for a lunch for instance at Chavanay, on the south part of the loop, or upon departure from Les Roches de Condrieu, or Condrieu. No need to mention also the famous wines: Condrieu and Côtes Roties from this area!
