Hike to Montagne de la Mandallaz

The Mandallaz is a small mountain located at the north-west of Lac d’Annecy, between Annecy and Geneva. This page has an itinerary (although not the one that I followed) that starts in the village of Balme de Sillingy. It gives a good view of the fault mirror at the base of the mountain.

I went by bike to Metz-Tessy and parked it south of the Bois des Machurettes. I then took the trail in the forest. After leaving the forest, I walked in direction of the Mandallaz using the paved road and then muddy forest roads. Finally, I arrived at the trail to reach the summit. After the summit, I went back using basically the same path.
