From Chamonix to les Praz

Between Chamonix and les Praz, the track is relatively straight and flat. First it is laid in a large plain also occupied by Chamonix sports center, then it traverses a wood (bois du Bouchet) and crosses Arveyron, the outlet stream of the Mer de Glace glacier, shortly before entering les Praz village.

This large sports center is located at the city limit of Chamonix.
