Hiking routes

From the limestone faces of the Jallouvre to the coombs and lapiaz of the Aravis, between the breakthrough of the Cols de la Colombière and the Annes that Mont Lachat connects, Le Grand-Bornand offers more than 160km of marked hiking trails. So many itineraries between pleasant mountain pastures and the impression of high mountains, to be explored freely or as part of the services offered by the Compagnie des Guides des Aravis. Discover an intense pastoral life punctuated by the production of the famous farmer’s Reblochon, and the riches of the local architecture, flora and fauna: chamois, ibexes, marmots and other vultures (Gypaète), the largest raptor in Europe.

Hike and ride safely

Choose hikes and routes according to your abilities (do not overestimate yourself…) the time and the difficulties (slope, uneven terrain…) indicated on the maps. Know how to measure your speed in mountain biking / cycling.

• Before leaving, take note of the weather forecast, the markings in place, find out about the current conditions (works, presence of névé) and check the condition of you cycle (mountain bike / bicycle)

Leave preferably in the morning (in the mountains thunderstorms are frequent in summer at the end of the day)

• If possible, inform someone of the time of your departure and your return as well as your itinerary, avoid going alone

• Do not rely solely on your mobile phone: it is not always possible to receive a network in mountain areas

• Do not forget to take with you: – food and hydration; – clothing adapted to the weather, which can change (cap, sunglasses, sunscreen, etc.); – a fitted helmet and repairs for mountain bikers and cyclists; – a first aid kit; – a mobile phone and useful emergency numbers.

Namely : Rule of measurement : On a map at 1/25,000, 4 cm represent 1 km. A difference of 1 mm between two contour lines is equivalent to a slope of 40%.
