Balade du Sentier de la Truite

The path includes a stretch from Morges to the mouth of Le Boiron, and from there along the river into the forest to St-Prex. The route includes 12 explanatory panels presenting the main aspects of the plant and animal life on the shore of the lake, along the river and in the forest, as well as the different cultural highlights. Each panel has an illustration, a brief text as well as special information for children.

There are three possible starting points: the Port du Petit Bois in MORGES, the post office at LULLY and the Perceval Institute in ST-PREX. This enables the visitor to follow different itineraries which are more or less long. They are all accessible by public transport : CFF (Swiss Federal Railways)/BAM station at Morges, CFF station at Tolochenaz and at St-Prex, and the MBC bus stop at Lully. The distance between these points ranges from two to seven kilometres.
