#2 of 18 in Trails in Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes
Mountain Hiking Trail
Le Semnoz was the site of a summit climb in the 2013 Tour de France. At 1, 699 m (5,574 ft) above sea level, it was a feat for any professional cyclist. Fortunately, you can master the mountain by car and visit the summit’s highest point for spectacular views of the surrounding peaks on the horizon and the villages dotting the land below your feet.
