The Signal - Monts du Lyonnais - Saint-André-la Côte

The attractions of the route

The Signal site, an emblematic peak of the Lyon mountains, located at 934 metres, equipped with a belvedere and an orientation table.

Invigorating course with mosaics of meadows interspersed with hedges against a backdrop of open landscapes on the Forez, the Alps, the Rhône Valley…
A sector of the Monts du Lyonnais at average altitudes of 750 to 800 metres. Vegetable and fruit crops give way here to the predominance of livestock (production of cheese, meat, etc.)
The panoramas: at the end of the rue de l'église in Saint-André-la-Côte facing the Alps, then between Saint-André-La-Côte and Brûle-Fer the view overlooking the village of Riverie.

When and how to take advantage of it?

Very windy open course: plan to cover yourself and put your binoculars in your bag.
Taking advantage of the Signal reward, 2 km before the finish, a well-deserved break while savouring the last drops of coffee from the thermos facing the Alps.
Summer walking at night during an organized outing with friends, well equipped with headlamps.
During the National Day of July 14 to admire the fireworks of the whole surrounding region on the return from the hike.
