Take a tour of an emblematic mountain in the Chambéry area, offering superb views of the town and its surroundings. The route includes river banks, waterfalls and rocky passages. A sporting itinerary just a stone's throw from the town.
D/ Chaffardon car park 1/ Take the tarmac road up to the viewpoint indicator (lieu-dit le Sautelet). 2/ Then follow a forest track, signposted "Tour du mont Peney", which runs along the side for a long stretch before climbing up towards the Dorette pass. A few cables and bars help you over the pass. 3/ Once over the rocky bar, a path on your left takes you along the ridges to the summit. All along the way, you'll enjoy magnificent panoramic views of Chambéry and the surrounding area. 4/ From the summit, follow the path down to the Col de la Doria. Then head towards Saint Jean d'Arvey. The path descends along a rocky bar to reach the Doria river at a footbridge. From this point, if you wish, a ten-minute diversions will allow you to observe the "Trou de la Doria", an impressive resurgence in the middle of the cliff! 5/ Alternatively, before the footbridge, turn left onto the steep downhill path towards Saint Jean d'Arvey. The path runs alongside the Doria for a short while before leaving it. 6/ Cross an area of scree (do not park in this area, as there is a risk of rockfalls), then continue through the forest to reach the starting car park. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Did you know that?
