|Classification:||P2, T1 (7.5 km)|

|Starting point:||Parking of Vernant - (1747 m)|
|Meeting point:||My place at St. Genis at 9h00 am.|
|Remarks:||Vernan lake, Views over the domaine of Flaine|
|Access:||Motorway from Geneva to Chamonix. Get out at the high of Cluses in the exit indicating "Les Carroz, Flaine". Follow indications to Les Carroz and/or Flaine (road D106) passing by Araches and Les Carroz. After Les Carroz you must pass by the sites of "les feux", "la Charbotaz" and "les Molliets". After driving for some 4.3 km from "les Molliets" you should arrive in the parking of Vernant. Park and get ready for the hiking there. The trip to Vernant should take about 1h30 minutes |

It is convenient to emphasize some useful items: please do not forget to carry on (wear) raincoat, hat/cap and sun glasses, warm gloves, hiking boots or sport-footwear with thick and non-slipping sole, enough food and drinks for the own consumption. Spear dry clothes and after excursion confortable shoes are very convenient.
Have a lovely weekend! Cheers! Jose.
