An easy route for those not acclimated to hiking the French Alps. And it's especially convenient if you're staying at "L’Horizon des Alpes" B&B in Glieres-Val-De-Borne. Note that the name Glieres-Val-De-Borne is new since January, 2019. This village was formerly known as Le Petit-Bornand-les-Glieres prior to that time.
