The Lake Annecy greenway
The greenway and cycle paths allow you to go around the lake and admire the landscape at your own pace. For the more athletic, there are passes that allow you to quickly gain height and enjoy privileged views.

The Lake Annecy greenway is a development accessible to the greatest number of people. It is one of the oldest greenways in France. On the western shore, it allows you to discover an exceptional environment between the lake and the mountains. It runs alongside the lake and its beaches, through small villages and allows you to move around easily on a route without any difficulty.
Between Annecy and Val de Chaise (Marlens), the greenway offers cyclists, rollerbladers and people with reduced mobility a dedicated route of almost 33 km. It is also accessible to pedestrians, runners and dogs on a leash on the shoulders.
For those who wish to continue the discovery, the greenway is extended to Albertville by a cycle route managed by the Savoie Department.

In addition to the greenway, the Department of Haute-Savoie and the SILA are continuing the construction of a cycle route on the eastern shore. This development will eventually enable the tour of the lake to be completed on a complete and safe cycle route.
This bank has a little more relief with a difference in level of about a hundred metres on the commune of Talloires-Montmin. The most athletic will not feel the small bump; the less trained will perhaps put their foot down.
