Saturday, November 13, 2021 by V.V.Nice walk but yesterday happened to be fair in Sint-Lievens-Houtem. So I left in Hillegem, parking at the church, on the route. That way I avoided the bustle of the fair. Fine picnic/pause spot at De Romein on the Balei.

Wednesday, June 16, 2021 by Tom DeputterVery nice route in greenery. 98% off road. In the beginning when leaving the allotment it is not clear which direction. So it is straight ahead in the forest. Sometimes some searching for signs in the green. Highly recommended!

Sunday, January 24, 2021 by Danielle GhyselsLots of swampy sections, shoes almost completely covered in mud. BEter choose a different time of year to do this route but otherwise beautiful. Well signposted
