Hike to Circuit de l’Ancienne Mine & Oratoire

The Circuit de l’Ancienne Mine (Old Mine Loop) is a hiking trail in the village of Lathuile, near Lake Anency. It first goes to an old coal mine that closed in the mid-20th century. Then, after passing through the village of Entrevernes, it leads to L’Oratoire (The Oratory), which offers a great view on the south of Lake Annecy and on the valley towards Faverges. The path then goes back to the start of the trail in Lathuile.
