Description - Canal d'Entreroches - La Sarraz - Eclépens
The remains of a rather crazy project: linking the North Sea with the Mediterranean Sea.
It is along a small part of this canal that you will walk.
The canal from Entreroches to Eclépens, a waterway that was to link the Mediterranean to the North Sea, was built between 1638 and 1648. Situated in the heart of Europe, its purpose was to link Lake Neuchâtel to Lake Geneva. The canal was used for merchant shipping between Cossonay and Yverdon until 1829.
From La Sarraz station, take the route d'Eclépens towards the Château de la Sarraz. At the roundabout turn right and follow the Rue du Mormont.
Most of the route will take you through the forest on gravel paths or trails and occasionally on concrete paths. This route crosses the Mormont. You will find picnic places along the way.
