Le sentier du Sapin à Siméon

A travers les champs et la forêt, vous découvrirez l’histoire de Siméon ainsi que d’autres informations sur la région.

Avant la construction du chemin de fer reliant la vallée de Joux à la plaine, les coursiers à pied acheminaient dans leur hotte messages et denrées indispensables. Lourdement chargé pour franchir le col du Marchairuz, le messager Siméon Meylan s'arrêtait et se reposait sous un grand sapin blanc après la dure montée de la St-George.
A la fin des années cinquante, ce vénérable conifère plusieurs fois foudroyé succomba au chantier de la nouvelle route. L'histoire devenue légende demeure, tout comme la statue de Siméon sculptée dans un tronc provenant de la forêt voisine et offerte par son auteur, M. Paul Monney de St-George.
