Saturday stroll: La Plaine-Cartigny-Bernex
 
Saturday stroll: La Plaine-Cartigny-Bernex Picture
Saturday, February 18th, 2017 @ 13:00
, Geneva
 
This is a little bit "last moment" as the weather forecast has turned out to be quite good!

For this walk, we will meet at 13h10 at Cornavin Railway station, platform 5 (near the benches) and take the 13h18 train to La Plaine (arrival there at 13h36). Your monthly or annual public transport pass is also valid in this train, single tickets cost 3 CHF.

For those for whom it is really easier to come in their own car: after the walk there is a bus every 30 minutes from Bernex Place to Satigny, with corresponding train to La Plaine.

From La Plaine, we will cross the Rhone and make our way up to the village of Avully. We then follow the trail through fields and forest to the old part of the village of Cartigny. We then turn towards the natural reserve of Moulin-Vert, site with the greatest bio-diversity in the Canton of Geneva. We descend and walk along the little lakes. We then make our way up to the small village of Petite-Grave and from there to Bernex where we take a bus/tram back to Geneva.

We will have a little picnic on the way - take food and drinks along!

Distance: about 11 to 12 km., with some little uphills and downhills - regular walking or jogging shoes are fine.

We will take it easy and walk for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Expect to be back in town by 18h00 the latest.

cheers,

Bert
