Trail maps are available from Tourist Offices throughout the Val d'Arly, including La Giettaz.  Click here to download a PDF map of the La Giettaz-Portes du Mont Blanc sector.

La Clusaz and Les Saisies also have excellent facilities for mountain bikes, including purpose-built downhill runs in addition to the cross-country trails.
