Pathway "the story of the granite men"

The path (approximately 1km long) is located at the entrance of Combloux when you come from Sallanches. It goes along a forest where you will still find granite carried and left by glaciers 15 000 years ago.
Thematic path in the footsteps of the granite men. Many vestiges of the past (winches, barriers, access ramps, ...) will immerse you in the atmosphere of another age, when hard workers were comming from Italy to shape the granite.

Free access or guided visits.
Be careful, during winter the path is slippery - good hiking shoes are necessary.
