Monday, April 18, 2022 by Yasmin VdCVery nice hike! Signage clearly marked, few crowds along the way, most of the hike on quiet roads. Also very pleasant to walk with dogs, few disturbing elements along the way. Highly recommended!

Monday, November 1, 2021 by tim dingemansvery nice and beautiful walk. Variety of forest, field and paved roads. It is recommended to follow the signs instead of the nodes and good footwear.

Monday, January 11, 2021 by A.G.A very beautiful and varied walk with lots of different landscapes. At hei end you enter built-up areas and it is a bit of a search for the starting point. Highly recommended.

Wednesday, November 18, 2020 by Guy Van dammeThis hike is highly recommended. Alternating nature: forests - meadows. Also historically an interesting path ... Remains of the Romans and witnesses of the 2 world wars. Attention: from junction 868 it is recommended to follow the sign " Natuur-rijk Elewijt wandelpad".

Our rating: a well-deserved 9/10
