Sentier des Graniteurs
With a length of about 1km, the path is located at the entrance to the village of Combloux when arriving from Sallanches. He walks through the forest where there are still huge erratic blocks deposited about 15 years ago, during the retreat of the glacier.
Produced with the collaboration of the ONF, Espace Mont-Blanc, the Department and the municipality, it reuses the paths and access ramps created at the beginning of the XNUMXth century and guides the walker in the footsteps of the graniters. The various themes are approached thanks to thematic panels, reconstruction of a forge, exhibition of small equipment. Taking this trail gives the feeling of living in another era where men worked hard to earn a living. Indeed, many vestiges of the old quarries (winches, slides, access ramps, boarding platform, etc.) immerse you in the atmosphere of the joyful graniters from neighboring Italy.
Free access or guided tour from the 2nd bend in the Plan Mouillé ZAC.
Be careful, during the winter the path is slippery - bring good shoes.
