Take the old path once trod by the lay brothers from the monastery and discover a little-known corner of Salève, with its alpine pastures, chalet, Sauge footpath and the village of Saint Blaise. There's a splendid view of the Geneva area.

Level: Easy
On the way, you can admire the magnificent Pomier Charterhouse. In terms of geology, you will see the limestone rocks of Balme. As you pass the chalet, you'll find some remarkable trees. You can also take a break in the village of St Blaise. From the cemetery, follow the sightseeing trail with its entertaining information boards describing the development of the village (1 hr maximum).

During the walk you can visit the visitors centre (Maison du Salève) in Mikerne by taking the left-hand path before Pomier. This was the Carthusians' old barn. Now it contains exhibitions on aspects of the history of the Salève area and its "firsts" (the invention of rock climbing, famous people who stayed here etc.). You can also step inside its eco-shop and buy a souvenir. A via ferrata called Revacliez lies in the rocks at Pomier and there is no limit on access. Do not use it from February to June, to avoid disturbing the pair of peregrine falcons that nest there.
