Les bords de l'Arve - De Gaillard à Arthaz

10 Km

This walk along the Arve offers both walkers and mountain bikers a moment of relaxation and discovery of local fauna and flora as well as magnificent viewpoints of the massif des Bornes, the Haut-Giffre or even Mont-Blanc.

During this walk you'll come across beavers, little grebes, reed buntings and other rare birds that come to nest in these woods. With the lakes and islands on the other side of the river, you can discover a nature reserve that has been designated a biotope. Further along, after passing the bridge at Étrembières and then going past the attractive "Jardin des Iris" and the Grand Casino, you'll take the wooded path to Creuse and then cross the footbridge over the Menoge which links the municipalities of Bétraz-Monthoux and Arthaz. A few minutes later you'll enjoy a lovely view of the river.
