  • Guidebook with maps/step-by-step : From Taninges town hall, walk alongside the Foron and then take the footpath along the right banks of the Foron, towards Flérier. This itinerary joins onto the green trail “Au Fil du Giffre” when you get near to the Lac de Flérier. In the area around Faucigny fish farm, we can see evidence of the presence of beavers (rough dams built, trees gnawed down). The trail goes via Flérier, then the hamlet of “Les Crottuts” before crossing the D907 at “Chez les Montant” / “les Verchères”. Follow an uphill footpath between field and forest then go right along a path that leads through some pretty hilltop villages, ""Sur Marcelly"", ""Marcelly"" and ""Sous Marcelly"". Then head back down to Taninges with some impressive viewpoints overlooking the village, via Hauteville and the “Montée du Sapeur”.
