From Archamps, the path runs up to the Grand Piton (alt. 1380 metres, highest point in the Salève range) through meadows and woodland. From the pastures at the summit, there are 360º panoramic views!
A breathtaking view including Geneva and the Alps. On the way, you'll see the Archamps rocks, the Chavanne pastures grazed by dairy herds and the Grand Piton (summit and Bastian Tower).
For more details (map, route, description...), you can obtain the Hiking Guide with 37 walks and hikes: "Pays du Salève et du Vuache à pied". On sale at the Tourism Office of St Julien and the Genevois for 14.50€.
The path crosses pasture and meadows. Please close the gates behind you and keep your dog on a lead. Take special care in winter - the ground can be very slippery.
