Icon description route Description

You start at the church of Krokegem for a rural walk with beautiful views over the Pajottenland and the center of Asse. Walk past historical farms such as the Hof ter Lange Bomen and the Verbrand Hof. On your route, walk through 2 forests. The Kartelobos forest charms with its ascending and descending footpath; in spring you will find a purple carpet of flowering hyacinths. The Kravaalbos is more extensive and lies in the municipalities of Aalst, Asse and Opwijk. In spring here, wood anemones and wild hyacinths also color the forest white and purple.

The root nodules of the purple hyacinths are very delicate. If you step on the flowers, they will not grow back next year. So stay on the paths and don't stand among the flowers to take a picture. You risk a fine by the way.

This walk is offered by Tourism Flemish Brabant.

Sunday, October 23, 2022 by B.K.On this (warm) 23rd October, this hike did us a great favor. It is very varied; sometimes you walk on paths along houses but you always enjoy the nature in this beautiful region with its beautiful landscapes and forests.

Saturday, November 7, 2020 by W.G.This is really not a special hike if you want to see a nice visual point during a hike as an occasional variation between the fields and one or the other forest , such as e.g. a beautiful farm, chapel, river, bridge, water mill,...None of that during this hike.

Tuesday, September 15, 2020 by J.D.a nice walk,along quiet roads in full nature, the piece through the forest was welcome because during our walk at noon it was above 30° , sorry that there was nowhere to picnic along the way as warned in the review

Wednesday, July 15, 2020 by Wilfried Van HoeckVery nice hike.
We left in Mazenzele at the church where you can find the necessary parking.
Spacious hiking trails on certain sections, very quiet along the way. Unfortunately no horica encountered along the way, so be sure to provide food and drinkK.
Best of all, you can hike each trail with an outdoor GPS device.
The trail is also only signposted in one direction. However, texting can cause problems along the way.
Top hike to do once.
