While visiting the eagle park in Sciez, I came across a brochure for this gorge located up in the mountains. I had not heard of it before but apparently it is one of the top ten tourist attractions in the Haute Savoie with over 50,000 visitors every summer.
It is about 58 km from Geneva or an hours drive. You are accompanied by a guide for the visit and it takes between 40-50 minutes to walk through. Some of this may have got lost in translation (lost on my part I mean and not the guide who did a fabulous job translating into English for us), but the devil's bridge was formed when an avalanche fell onto the frozen river and when the ice melted the rocks were left there forming a bridge. These interesting rock formations have been a tourist attraction since the 1890s and the remains of the original viewing platforms can still be seen today.
There's lots of stairs involved in visiting the gorge but it is manageable even for those who are not as mobile as they might once have been as there are plenty of handrails.
