Sentier des planètes Sentier des planètes

Path of the planets

A small educational trail depicting a walk across the solar system in reduced proportions.

Ideally situated on the edge of the forest, the route takes around 40 minutes round trip, giving visitors a fun way to discover the stars while enjoying a magnificent panorama of Vallorbe and the Dent de Vaulion.

Each planet is represented by a wooden post on which a legend provides details about the planet. These are placed in proportion to the distances separating them on a reduced scale: a step of 60 centimetres along the path represents a journey of 2.76 million kilometres through our Galaxy.
