    From there, you can take voie Sarde (on your right) to go down or keep going towards Col Saint-Michel (903 m) where you will be able to admire the lake.
    The link between the two passes is defined with small steep paths. Be careful because there is a steep descent right before Col St Michel.
    Only experts will be able to go down with a bike.
    Once you've reached the pass, you will start a long descent, first in single track (narrow path) and then on voie Sarde till Parking des Allemands.
    Keep going down till "La Grange du Trieu". Take the second road on your right and keep going on this small tarmac section. Careful with the channels going through the road that could surprise you.
    The last descent section is through an uneven and slippery path along the stream. Even though it is not steep, stay aware to avoid mistakes.
    The way back is from the south of the lake through la Combe, Aiguebelette-le-Lac, Lépin and St-Alban-de-Montbel.
