Immerse yourself in the forest on a hike. The trail is decorated with didactic panels that will teach you more about the forest.
From the Yens train station, head towards the village, then out of the fields and into the forest. Le Boiron accompanies you almost all along the hike. A nice picnic area awaits you when you get in the forest. There you can build a fire and sit down. Once you have completed the loop in the forest, you take the same path through the fields to reach the village of Yens.
Why Fumas: In 1628, bad weather destroyed almost all the crops. In order to have something to eat, the villagers of Yens went to collect acorns in the forest. They roasted them so they could grind them and make bread out of them. During this operation, thick smoke came out of the chimneys. That is why people nicknamed the villagers of Yens "Fumas". A nickname they still wear today.
