During summer, I went on a hike to Roc des Boeufs in the Bauges mountains near Annecy.

Here is a map of the path I walked (download KML):

In the morning, I took the Sibra summer shuttle (Ligne d’été) from Annecy to the summit of Semnoz, taking my bike with me. From there, I went down to Col de Leschaux then went slightly up on the other side of the pass and parked at La Chapelle-Saint-Maurice. I started walking on the path to Chalets du Sollier, through a paved road at first, then a trail in the forest and finally an access road. The steep ascent to Roc des Boeufs starts at the Chalet. There was a great view from the summit. I then went down using the same path. I returned to Annecy through the Route du Col de Leschaux and the Voie Verte du Lac d’Annecy.
