Annecy, France

Vallon du Fier

Guilhem Vellut

Looking for some more cool running close by the city? There is a network of gravel trails between Parcours Sportif de Meythet and the Centre Sportif Marcel Dassault in the northeast reaches of Annecy. The paths are mostly enclosed by woods, but the protection and shade are great for hot or windy days. We’ve mapped a 4.7 km loop around the area, including some cool sections along the Fier River. This route starts from the Vallon du Fier trailhead at Parc des Sports d’Annecy, although it’s also possible to start from Centre Sportif Marcel Dassault or Parcours Sportif de Meythet.

Add-On: Adjacent to the Vallon du Fier is the Parc des Sports d’Annecy, which has fields and a stadium with a great running track.
