N°01 Along the waterway


Pictogramme Randonée
Discover the charm of the Moudon countryside on this signposted walk. From leafy forests to picturesque villages, there is no shortage of attractions. Then return to the valley as far as Moudon, following the banks of the river Broye, a refuge for wildlife.

This very pretty hike is considered easy and therefore accessible to most hikers. It will allow them to discover the richness and diversity of the region's landscapes. 

Start at the car park of the Moudon train station and then follow the official signposts and its yellow "walking tourism" signs in the direction of Chavannes-sur-Moudon. Follow the small road for a few meters, then take a bridge to cross the Broye. 

You will get to a nice picnic area, which is the starting point for the ascent through the forest. In less than an hour you reach the village of Chavannes-sur-Moudon. Discover the chapel of Notre-Dame dating from the 13th century, and admire the panorama of the Alps and the Jura heights. 

The walk then takes you in the direction of Bressonnaz on the "Chemin de la Vieille Route". Your path runs along the forest, then joins the main road and leads you to the restaurant in this waterside hamlet. 

From there, you join the river Broye below and discover on your left the molasse cliffs, typical geological heritage of the region.
