Icon description route Description

The walk starts at the Saint Sixtus Abbey in Westvleteren, where there is ample parking. In fact, you will almost permanently follow the fully signposted, beautiful, and varied Sint-Sixtus walk until the crossing at Chalet de l'Amitié.

About a hundred meters past this building, where the route indicates to turn left, you will deviate slightly to the right and then take the first path on the left (see map). You are now in the Canada Wood, where the floor slab of a World War II launch site for the V1 weapon (Vergeltungswaffe 1) still remains.

At the information board, you then turn left and then left again to rejoin the Sint-Sixtus route. This will bring you back to the starting point at the abbey and the establishment De Vrede, where it is obviously pleasant to stay.
