This loop goes through the Col de la Cochette, it is a longer variant of the hike that starts from Saint-Jorioz to La Magne. The loop of Entrevernes is of average level, but offers from the beginning of the village of Entrevernes very beautiful points of view on the lake, the massifs of the Bornes and Bauges.

This loop is marked by the Department, in collaboration with Grand Annecy and proposed by the Lake Annecy Tourist Office. The markup is present all along the route (sign and yellow arrows).
It is done in three stages a rise in laces at the neck, a gradual descent on the crest of the mountain of Entrevernes, then to go up on the Taillefer while passing by the hamlet of the houses. Beautiful views, heritage, history, a very complete hike to do virtually all year, except after heavy rain or snow.
Our recommendations: good walking shoes (slippery terrain), a hiking stick for the descent that is long and slippery, obviously the picnic and water. For the hunting season (autumn, winter) this course is safe on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, the forest is very popular with wild boar, deer. Other days and holidays are very vigilant: yellow vest, bell to the backpack!
