Description

The numbers speak for themselves: more than 17 km at an average gradient in excess of 7%, with several kilometres steeper than 9%.
The view from the top will be your best reward on this climb.
Make sure you do a few training rides on easier cols before tackling this climb! The Semnoz is one of the top 10 cyclo-climbing challenges in Savoie Mont Blanc.
As the road climbs north-facing slopes covered with shady forests, one positive aspect of this ride is that you will nearly always have cool conditions.
The route begins in the centre of Annecy at the “hospital roundabout”. At the top of the Avenue du Trésum, take the Boulevard de la Corniche and then follow the D41. After 3 km the gradient eases slightly, allowing you to get your breath back for the long, sustained effort needed to get to the summit.
As well as offering a challenging bike ride, the Semnoz is also an outstanding viewpoint. Being a relatively high (1699 m) and isolated mountain, standing guard over the northern Alps, it offers a 360° panorama that encompasses the high peaks of western Switzerland, the Mont Blanc Massif, the Aravis, the Beaufortain, the Vanoise, the Bauges and the Chartreuse.

Le Semnoz

Le Semnoz mountain, a vast protected area, 16 km long and stretching from an altitude of 450 m to one of 1,699 m. Close to Lake Annecy, it offers a vast terrain for play and discovery in all 4 seasons (skiing, snowshoeing, walks, mountain biking...).Le Semnoz, to the north of the Bauges mountains and bordering the western bank of Lake Annecy, is a concentration of activities. In winter, the ski resort offers an ideal terrain for practicing cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowshoeing and snowkiting. In summer, make way for the alpine pastures with their animals, farms and cheese production. It is also the chance to go for a wander along the many walking paths and mountain bike circuits. The resort offers an alpine slide and various downhill activities (devalkart, runix...). You can also discover the botanical path and rock climbing sites. All year round, Le Semnoz - with the Crêt de Chatillon as its highest point - offers a viewpoint indicator and 360-degree view. A magnificent site for admiring the French Alps, with Mont-Blanc in the background.
