Sunday, February 27, 2022 by J.D.not really spectacular but quite a nice walk, quiet, also along the paved roads, but as in many places, the unpaved trails are broken by the mountain bikers and therefore muddy and difficult to get through after a rainy period

Sunday, December 20, 2020 by A.T.Fine walk through a beautiful landscape. Saw the shepherd with his Border Collie at work. Some narrow paths are also used by mountain bikers, so you have to be careful there. Clear signage. If the wind comes from the SSE, like today, then unfortunately you have to take in the "noise" of the E40. Still recommended.
