Pont de Saint Georges (tram stop Jonction), Geneva
Let's hike along the river from Jonction to Evaux (Onex) and further to Tours Lignon. This is a light hike of 7km mostly in the woods by the banks of the river Rhône. It should take from 1h30min to 2h to complete.

Meeting Point: Bridge "Pont de Saint Georges" (tram stop Jonction).

How to get to the starting point: take the tram/bus and get off at Jonction tram stop. From there, walk towards the river Arve, towards route de Chancy. Meet me at the forest's side of the bridge, by the sign "Bois-de-la-Bâtie", see photo below.

Here's our intinerary:

1) Pont de Saint Georges (starting point)

2) Saint Georges Cemetery

3) Under the Pont Butin

4) Along the Rhone

5) Parc des Evaux (Onex) - 1st finishing point for those who are tired or wish to stop early.

6) Passarelle du Lignon

7) Tours/Cité Lignon (buses 7, 9, 28 and 51) - 2nd finishing point for those who wish to walk a bit longer. From there we take a bus to Gare Cornavin, Bel-Air, Les Esserts, Airport, whatever is more convenient for you.

What to bring: a bottle of water, hiking shoes (or trainers), rain jacket, hat, sunglasses.

The hike takes 1h 30min to 2h to complete, so we have to start at 18h00 in order to finish before sunset.

The weather forecast promises sunshine, so it should be quite easy and good fun!
