Monday, February 14, 2022 by J.V.Attention! At hiking node 30 (Puttenstraat), the arrow pointing to hiking node 35 is in the wrong direction! It points to the left instead of to the right (cross the road and then go right up). That's probably why some hikers got lost. Also at the cultural center the signposting is unclear.

Sunday, April 11, 2021 by I.A.Hike is not correct, after number 30 no pictures follow. We were unable to finish the walk.

Sunday, February 7, 2021 by Marc De ConinckSupplementary to Werner Knop's review about the horse pasture : this stretch between node 301 and 302 can only be done in a wet period with boots, because you sink 5 cm deep in the mud.

Sunday, January 10, 2021 by werner knopThe first km you walk along a road next to a busy road. Once you enter the forest, you enter an oasis of peace and beautiful fields. It stays that way until the last km. There's also a part where you have to cross a meadow with horses. All in all a nice hike. At the end of the hike you can visit museum De Druif.

Sunday, June 7, 2020 by Kossen LieveAn alternation of cozy village center and mostly rural surroundings with beautiful views, hollow roads, a castle and some serious climbs (and descents of course after). Wonderful!
