The Coastal Woods Trail - Echandens

In the heart of the Bois de la Côte in the Commune of Echandens, the trail features educational panels on the forest.

After a first part offering games to better understand the forest, its history and its tremendous growth dynamics, the trail takes you on a signposted loop through this communal forest. The illustrated explanation panels describe themes as diverse as "forest and cabin instinct", "where my branches went", "wheat, black powder and cocoa", from clutter to forest", "compost like the forest", "lotto of Lothard", "the Venoge eats its banks". A round trip to the adjoining agricultural land tells the story of the landscape importance of the forest in peri-urban areas and the close links between the forest, viticulture and arboriculture.
