Embark on a complete tour of the lake, and discover the natural and historical heritage of the lake! Course all in reminders but hilly with quite brittle climbs.

Extract from the interview with Mikaël Pasero, local trail ambassador: "Trail running is a great endurance practice. It's complete, there is a taste for effort and the discovery of different places for those who vary the practice sites. As a middle mountain, the Pays Voironnais offers trail running terrain for the general public, in the sense that everyone can enjoy it and find their way around. Accessible at all levels, the paths are less technical and wider , without too many stones and with affordable drops. It also allows you to progress at your own pace. Living in Montferrat, my favorite is really the complete tour of Lac de Paladru. It gives a sense, a goal of game, like when you get to a summit or a particular site; that's what I prefer. "

Note that this course allows you to take sections of the Trail du Lac Paladru course, organized each year on the last weekend of April.
