Saturday, July 23, 2022 by Tamara NotaertsBeautiful walk . Especially along quiet field and forest roads. Only when you are almost at the end we missed? Or did a sign disappear.... Followed slow road and ended up back at a sign after turning around at the intersection ;) Absolutely recommended

Saturday, February 6, 2021 by Ingrid VandijckNice walk except for the last quarter when you walk along a busy lane with no passable shoulder for quite some time.

Sunday, September 20, 2020 by G.M.Surely the name of this hike is misleading. >Mini-mini-mini Switzerland hike. The number of beautiful views during this hike is not that numerous

Too bad

Thursday, October 17, 2019 by M.D.Beautiful hike, but. In the upper loop, almost all the signposts have disappeared (or we didn't find them). Unpaved roads have since been asphalted and vistas are hidden behind new villas.... This was a bit disappointing.
