The route is fully signposted with nodes.
A beautiful hiking trail that shows all characters. Start at the Bloso domain Hazewinkel (large parking lot) and via the water sports course we stroll through the forest of nature point to the Rupel. Along the Rupel to the tourist marina of Klein-Willebroek with numerous restaurants. Then we walk back along the beautiful hiking paths to our starting point.
Have fun hiking!

Sunday, April 10, 2022 by Hilde VdVNice walk through mainly nature reserve, only a little industry but also very quiet there on a Sunday. Spotted nesting storks, and of course many water birds such as grebes, swans, ... The stretch of towpath indeed many cyclists but sufficiently wide not to interfere. 👍🏻
Friday, January 29, 2021 by Peter Van der HaegenNot recommended even boring hike. Plus point: hiking in the Provincial Domain is ok though.
Sunday, November 22, 2020 by S.V.Very nice walk between the ponds and woods of the Blaasveldbroek and a pleasant trail through the provincial domain. After that, the hike doesn't amount to much. After the nice views on the dike of the Rupel, it's only a walk on a busy bike path along industrial area and then residential areas. Incomprehensible choice
Wednesday, July 22, 2020 by Raymond DuvalDid this hike yesterday, on our National Holiday. Nice and pleasant route with remarkable places, such as the Domein Hazewinkel and the port of Klein Willebroek. Only a strip between node 191 and 147 not maintained. Rather a jungle path than a hiking path. So urgently need to be trimmed.
Sunday, July 19, 2020 by A.D.top tour, lots of big water , small pools and greenery...eating out at the boathouse near the start or end also recommended
Tuesday, July 14, 2020 by E.V.Ambiguity to go from 197 to 121.
Same regarding the path from 191 to 147 and then 190.
Other than that, we found it a fine hiking trail.
Our various bubbles had a problem at the same place each time
Sunday, July 5, 2020 by J.L.Perfect to do with the kids 12 and 9y
Saturday, May 23, 2020 by C.D.What a blissful walk! Water and greenery everywhere. Truly a topper!
Sunday, May 17, 2020 by M.L.Unfortunately more than half of the hike is on asphalt, much of it along the very busy (cycling tourists) towpath of the Rupel river. Only the paths in the forest could charm us.
Sunday, March 4, 2018 by F.D.Have yet to do this hike.
