Icon description route Description

Once across the language border, you almost immediately find yourself in the Brakelbos on the flank of Mont de Rhode or Modderode. Today the Bos-ter-Rijst is an elongated strip with a footpath in the middle, but three hundred years ago it was part of a dense and extensive forest.

TheWandering Light hiking trailis brought to you byRouten, an initiative of Tourism East Flanders.

Monday, September 6, 2021 by P.P.Beautiful hike, lots of unpaved, especially from the moment you get to Brakel forest until the end point! Recommended starting at the church of Schorisse, somewhere halfway between nodes 22 and 14.

Monday, April 5, 2021 by werner knoppretty nice course but some distance and descent/climbing experience is still recommended. Especially the Brakelbos section is beautiful. In some places beautiful views and crossing sporting cyclists who have to stand up to the sloping course of this region. Beautiful but also tough. The small part of the Walloon border is also nice.

Monday, November 23, 2020 by C.V.Beautiful walk through nature with beautiful views, (node 4 the sign is gone but written on the post). Beautiful field roads and fields, unpaved roads, through forests. Few paved roads. A topper! I will definitely go back again.

Thursday, July 23, 2020 by Dirk DelenAbsolutely recommended, a beauty of a walk !!!!!!! The chance to quench your thirst at km 10 is a relief and gives this hike something extra...... just do it !!!

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 by Johan YsewijnNice day hike, about 70% unpaved. Be careful though, occasionally a direction change is rather "hidden". Just after halfway (junction 6) plenty of opportunities for a drink. Beautiful forest area (Brakelbos, forest Ter Rijst).

Sunday, May 24, 2020 by Jonathan VannesteVery nice hike through the Flemish Ardennes on mostly unpaved roads. One crossing of a busy road, between nodes 6 and 52, but for the rest almost continuously in nature, both meadows and forests.
