Perhaps mistakenly, this hike is called the Laudon circuit. Indeed, according to the directional panels, we start at Saint-Jorioz and head for Saint-Eustache, initially following the Laudon river, a tributary of Lake Annecy.

Hiking itinerary established in cooperation with the Tourist Information Office and, for the signage, the councils of the “département” and Greater Annecy.
This medium-distance circuit might be rather long for children, but offers beautiful views over the mountains and some glimpses of the lake. It is a gentle mix of countryside, forest, rural landscape and a history that is sometimes tragic. We start at Saint-Jorioz church where the little supermarket opposite is handy for your picnic needs. Unfortunately, the only café on the route has closed its doors. You can fill your flask with fresh water at Saint-Eustache.
