A must-do hike in the Alpes du Léman. Not to be missed on clear days so you get the best of the views over Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc.
Nature and Heritage:
Explore the mountain pastures of Hirmentaz and its wide variety of mountain flowers.
Route details:
Set off from the ESF (ski school) along the public highway until you reach a large building (ski lift garage). Turn left to "les Parchets" until you reach an electric gate then turn right to Pointe d'Hirmentaz (signs) which begins in the bottom of the valley. You will reach Pointe d'Hirmentaz with 360° views from Lake Geneva to Mont Blanc, the Aravis to the Jura range and Mont Forchat to Roc d'Enfer.
Take the right-hand path to the little pass. Go through the valley beneath the ski lifts and continue straight on. You’ll reach the starting point after passing a reservoir.
Add another 2km to your hike: follow signs to "Arête des Incarnes", a panoramic trail along the ridge to the reservoir, the mountain pastures and ending at the starting point.
Useful information: yellow markings/Highest point: Pointe d'Hirmentaz 1607m.
