#1 of 17 in Trails in Haute-Savoie
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.

    The area is nice. Damage, the presence of clouds hid us the view on white mount... but the site looks good.

    Great place to spend couple of hours, driving there from Annecy was nice experience. We stopped half of the way to enjoy the view of Annecy from the Mountain

    Very nice, ideal place for walking / hiking with children. The paths are signposted. The different points of view offered by this site are superb: panoramic 360 throughout the region with orientation table to identify the peaks, mountains, lakes etc... Preferably go there one day when the sky is clear allows to admire Mont Blanc including.
