Lake Annecy Cycle Path

Between Annecy & Albertville

Stretching 50 kilometres, the popular cycle path of Lake Annecy follows the trail of an old railway track connecting Annecy to Albertville. This flat path is situated away from car traffic and offers the chance of a relaxing cycle ride into Annecy from the campsite which is located just 200 metres from the cycle path.

The track is composed of a major part of green track, over more than 30 km, then a supplement of cycle route to Albertville. The green lane along the lake on the west shore can be used by cyclists, but also by people with reduced mobility, by people on rollerblades, and by pedestrians on the shoulder. It is prohibited to motor vehicles. It is therefore ideal for a safe family walk. You will enjoy exceptional landscapes and magnificent views of the lake. The green lane is used as a route for daily travel, as a place for walking and tourist discovery, and as a privileged site for running or sports walking. The track is punctuated by very useful rest areas if you are on a long bike ride. The Doussard one, for example, built on the site of the former Brédannaz station, includes toilets, a picnic area and a drinking water fountain. Car parks allow you to easily reach the green lane for cycling or hiking by varying the starting points: you will find them at Sevrier beach, around Saint-Jorioz, at Duingt, at Doussard port, or at Vésonne and Faverges after having moved away from the lake.
