Icon description route Description

This signposted cycle route introduces us to the rural splendor of Denderleeuw and its surroundings, takes us along the meandering Dender and shows us the diversity of a number of village centers. Due to its convenient location, Denderleeuw is mainly known as a commuter town and does not hint at its pronounced green character. The Wellemeersen is one of the most ecologically valuable nature reserves, while the Welle and Iddergem boroughs are still characterized by large, open agricultural groves. The route name refers to the many inhabitants who earned their living pulling boats along the Dender and were called schiptrekkers, the nickname of the Denderleeuwenaars.

Sunday, July 24, 2022 by Willy VerbinnenBeautiful route. Signs are not visible everywhere. This route can be perfectly replaced by the junction signs. We extended our trip to 70 km via the nodes.

Friday, November 10, 2017 by R.V.Varied trail with some nice views. Signage missing in some places including on dender path between Denderleeuw and Liedekerke at railroad bridge. Otherwise really enjoyed this trail!

Thursday, September 7, 2017 by P.S.Cool route but bit much on slightly too busy roads. Variety in landscape & difficulty (some inclines). I did not experience any problems with the signage, maybe they have been updated?
