Chemin du Foron

Walking/pedestrian in Annemasse
18.4 km
  • From its source in the Voirons mountains, the river Foron runs right across the Annemasse-Les Voirons area. From Machilly to Gaillard, the banks of the river are surfaced and it's very enjoyable to follow them through the farmland plains, the marshes and the villages.
    Following the border, the route offers connections to Switzerland.
