Along the way you'll discover the remains of the old funicular rail track (bridges, station in Monnetier and track ballast). After climbing up through the woods, you'll reach the alpine pastures at the upper cable car terminus where you can enjoy a panoramic view of Geneva. The funicular railway was inaugurated in 1892 but it fell into decline in 1935.
