1/ At the start of this hike, head towards chemin des Raffours to enter the forest. You then go down to follow Chaise - the only river of the Sources du Lac d'Annecy that doesn't feed the lake - untill you reach the small chapel of Ombre. Head towards Ombre-dessus following the dirt path going left in the bend after the oven to get to the "barns".

2/ Now head for the lime kilns. Enjoy this well-preserved heritage and get back to Cons Ste Colombe church, the start of your hike.
