Curian departure to La Thuile. At 3 km, just after the hamlet of Montoux, follow the small road to Necuidet, it’s much prettier. Do not drive up to Necuidet, but turn left towards the village of La Thuile: notice the perspective on the “Plateau de la Leysse” with the Margériaz and the Peney on the horizon. Park in front of the party hall overlooking the lake.
There are many variations: the blue track on the map above,is the most beautiful and the shortest.
Variation by the Tormery Rock and the “Grand Tapin” (yellow track above): 1h 15 more
Just before the house, take the right direction “La Savoyarde, Le Trou de Chignin” . Follow this path, and the yellow marks
At the Roc de Tormery sign, go back and forth without starting the descent: the view is stunning on the vineyards of Chignin and, further on the “Cluse de Chambery” and the “Montgelas”.
