By car, from the campsite le Verger Fleuri in Lathuile, take the right bank of the lake. After the restaurant "Kokopelly", turn right.
You can park in the parking spaces along the road.
The Col de la Forclaz is the mythical take-off point for paragliders in Haute-Savoie.
It offers a view of the whole lake and the surrounding towns.
The restaurants and souvenir shops at the top of the pass will allow you to take some comfort.
After the effort !
Continue on foot and turn left after the chapel. The path is signposted.
The start is quite steep and then the path becomes a long winding road with a slight incline.
Halfway along the walk, there are two paths with inconspicuous signs. Head to the right towards the Col de la Forclaz.
Some places can be narrow but the path is still very passable.
Come back down on the same path.
