Lake Annecy greenway

One of the oldest greenways in France. It allows you to discover an exceptional environment. Its first part is built alongside the lake and its beaches. An independent path shared with roller-skaters and pedestrians for a return trip away from road traffic.
Path: north/south.
Landmarks and connections: Saint-Jorioz (crossing the Leschaux Circuit n°8) ; Faverges (separation with the Tamié Circuit n°48) ; possibility in Marlens to go on to the Savoie greenway up to Ugine.

Description: this is probably one of the oldest greenways in France, offering an independent 35km-long path.
Starting from the Paquier grass area, and after crossing the pont des Amours and cycling along the marina, you can then find the greenway’s start, near the Marquisats. The track is set between the lake and the Semnoz mountain’s foothills: you can reach several beaches from Sevrier and Saint-Jorioz (bathing, water activities). A little bit further, you find yourself in Duingt. At the intersection with the road leading to Entrevernes, there is a rest area, right at the foot of the climbing site. After crossing the small tunnel, the Maladière area is suitable for a break allowing you to discover the surrounding mountains (la Tournette – among others – culminating at 2351m). In Bredannaz, after 14km of cycle path, another rest area is at your disposal with picnic tables, restrooms and water available. A steam locomotive is displayed so as to remind you that the cycle path was built on an old railway. Once you get to Doussard, you can find one last beach before the cycle path leads you further away from the lake, towards Faverges (24km from the start). Take the time for a stroll in the Bout du Lac nature reserve, a large area of wetlands home to more than 650 plant and emblematic animal species, including the beaver. You can follow the reserve’s path, marked with educational boards/signs. In Marlens, you can leave the path by taking right to reach the artificial lake with its small leisure centre (picnic area, petanque ground…) Soon after Marlens, you enter the Savoie department and finally arrive in Ugine which marks the end of the greenway after 35km.
