Icon description route Description

In the village of Houtem you'll be following car-free footpaths, field paths and church paths. They'll take you past some beautiful spots and centuries-old buildings, such as the Monnikshof and the Steenblockhoeve, which dates all the way back to 1550. The wooded forest forms a green buffer between the village and the E19 freeway. Finish at the nine craters of the De Bomputten nature reserve, all beautiful pools.

NOTE: This is a hike on a virtual hiking network. The nodes are not signposted on the property. Follow the 6-sided red and white signs with the name of the hike.

This hike is offered by Tourism Flemish Brabant.

Monday, April 18, 2022 by Yasmin VdCVery pleasant hike! Very quiet along the way. Signage well marked. Through the woods some mild mud in wet weather but well passable. Also very pleasant to walk with dogs, few disturbing elements along the way. Highly recommended!

Friday, February 5, 2021 by Benjamin KeppensSigns with junctions we did not see, maybe they still place them so we followed the "slow roads walk. It turned out to be a beautiful route among many twigs. One thing is unfortunate: the noise pollution, because even on a windless day there is background noise practically the whole way. Outside Corona there are also the noises from planes ...
