Criscrossing the Vieze river in the idyllic Vallon de They, this charming trail is appropriate for walkers and snowshoe hikers.
Starting behind the Bellevue building, walk in the direction of Vallon de They (route de Chésery). Head past the equestrian centre, passing under the orange arch which represents the Sun on the Planetary Trail. At the next crossroads, turn left onto the path called Petits Ponts, following the snowshoe yellow sign “Morgins-They”. This trail leapfrogs over the Vièze River with a dozen bridges and gangways.
Along the path, you’ll see Morgins’ famous Eau Rouge spring, marked by a stone grotto and clearly identifiable by the bright orange colour of the rocks in the stream. Tourists first came to Morgins to ‘take’ the iron-rich waters, which are high in minerals and still pure enough to drink even today.
The trail ends at the quaint traditional chalet that houses the Cantine de They restaurant.
Tip: park in the P7 parking lot in front of the Bellevue building.
Morgins’ snowshoe trails are marked with round signs in different colours, named by section according to the start and end of the trail segment. The snowshoe trails do NOT show the same numbers used on the Winter Sports Map.
In case of avalanche danger, do not pass the barrier that closes the trail at half of the route.
