The Gures trail

in Servoz
Presentation

An ancient Celtic camp situated above the Le Chatelard road and railway tunnels.

Departure by the Vieux Servoz. Go towards Le Châtelard: after the Pont des Lanternes, take the first path on the right that goes up the side of the Gures massif. On the plateau, in the vegetation, go through the camp and discover the testimonies of shelter, of defense or of habitat of people : Allobroges, Ceutrons,... Notice the Stone of the Sacrifice, the Dolmen of Laby, the Table... A Roman gallery, not very visible, is located near the road tunnel going up.

Notes. A path, the Berges de l'Arve rive droite, goes from the Pont des Lanternes to the Pont de l'Avenue (1h30).
