I skated north back to the city of Annecy on the bicycle path along the west side of the lake, which is mostly an abandoned railroad -- pretty gentle, and even has its own tunnel.

Lots of cyclists on this off-road paved bicycling path, also a few other skaters that day.

I climbed that mountain two days later, and skied down the other side [ see photos ]

Looking northeast across the lake from the bicycle path.

Looking south from the bicycle path, which is above the motor vehicle road.

That's the bicycle path taking a cut through a small ridge.

Bicyclists who just rode through the tunnel.

I found the inside of the tunnel very skatable.

pleasant houses and church along the path

the bicycle path returns to the city of Annecy,
and my loop around the lake is complete.
