Icon description route Description

The walk starts in picturesque Perk. Through the rue Saint-Jannekens, with its beautiful little houses from the 17th century, you pass the domain of Perk. Graceful turrets, 200 rooms, a park of 90 hectares, the castle of Ribaucourt seems straight out of a fairy tale. The old Hellebos appears on the oldest maps. Together with the Steentjesbos, Rotbos and Snijsselsbos, the Hellebos forms a green patch between Berg, Perk and Elewijt.

This walk is offered by the Regional Landscape Brabantse Kouters in cooperation with the municipality.

Wednesday, December 13, 2023 by L.B.The beginning of the hike starts out a bit monotonous but once you get to the forest part it is a bit more adventurous. Noisy though, lots of noise from both highway and kites. Otherwise a nice solid hike.

Thursday, April 21, 2022 by Yasmin VdCFirst part (up to KP 100) is not always so pleasant because there are neither footpaths nor bike lanes on the roads you walk on, so you have to constantly stand in the gutter to let cars pass. Second part though very quiet and nice. Also doable with dogs, few barking peers along the way.

Sunday, March 13, 2022 by Hilde VdVParking is easy at the soccer fields in the Kerkdreef. Varied walk along fields, through woods, past beautiful and old renovated houses, over streams (so watch out in rainy periods), next to the slip school, ... few busy streets so very quiet. Temporary bit of roadblock due to downed trees just before 14, but manageable.

Sunday, September 12, 2021 by Jo Van den eyndeNice hike via nicely upgraded agricultural paths. Many quiet forest trails, although some are quite muddy now in the fall so you do regularly slow progress via alternate created slightly drier shortcuts. Quiet surroundings with falling airplanes provide distraction. Friendly service in cafe at the start.

Tuesday, May 12, 2020 by Godelieve Van RompaeyNice hike but the start location is wrong: Church and St. John's Street are a long way from node 38
