A trail, dinosaur tracks, here is a part of history that does not let you indifferent.

Several other track sites are found in the region, but in areas that are not very accessible. At La Heutte, the tracks are located directly on the edge of a forest path. These footprints, discovered during the tracing of a forest path from 1992 to 1996, provide formal proof of the presence of dinosaurs in the Bernese Jura. On this trail, which is about 3 kilometers long, the tracks are visible at two particular points. Each point is accompanied by an informative panel on the species to which the imposing animal that left the tracks belonged.
