Balade du Sentier de la Truite

From the Maison du Tourisme de Morges, walk along the lake to the Maison de la Rivière. Then go up into the forest along the Morges and pass through the charming village of Saint-Prex.

From the Maison du Tourisme de Morges, go through the Parc de l'Indépendance where you can admire the hundred-year-old trees. Then continue along the lake and once you have passed the port of Le Petit-Bois, take a dip in the forest that borders Lake Geneva and welcomes the Vita trail. From here and until you leave the forest, didactic signs will punctuate your route. For example, you will learn more about the lake, fishing and the lake towns that were once here. Pass by the Maison de la Rivière and take the opportunity to stop and discover this unique place. Fun exhibitions, an educational pond and lake aquariums await you. Leaving the forest, pass through the pretty little town of Saint-Prex and admire its charming lanes.

Numerous benches are present on the route. A small picnic area is available in the forest to build a fire.

To get back to your starting point, you can take the bus 724 at the Place d'Armes stop, take the train at Saint-Prex station or walk back along the railway line following the yellow signs to Morges. The walk back takes about 1h30 (5km).

In case of shooting in Tolochenaz au Boiron, a diversion is set up via the Piste Vita, which is just above the track.
