Aard 4, 9260 Schellebelle
The route is fully signposted with nodes.
To protect the area from flooding, part of the Kalkense Meersen was returned to the Scheldt. This created a controlled flood area where large grazers stand with their feet in the water once every 50 years. The rest of the time it is a wonderful walk among dunes and heathland.

Thursday, October 12, 2023 by Dirk Van EsbroeckSurprisingly beautiful nature hike! No Galloways spotted in October but enjoyed the changing scenery. The ferry and a nice pancake on a terrace on the Scheldt were two added pluses.
Wednesday, August 25, 2021 by Sven SunaertWhat a beautiful peaceful nature walk this is !?!! Thoroughly enjoyed it as well as the delicious ice cream and drink afterwards. The use of the spring was a nice extra that could have lasted a little longer from us. Highly recommended for hiking!
Monday, May 31, 2021 by Michel VMTop walk between dunes and moors. Cattle seen. Cafes open again, but no place free. I will come back again, but during the week then.
Tuesday, November 10, 2020 by B.N.the kalkense meersen are especially beautiful in summer and you can have a drink at the ferry.
Monday, August 3, 2020 by D.D.beautiful piece of nature very close by; mostly hiked in peace and quiet. Galloway cattle unfortunately not spotted.
Monday, July 20, 2020 by PATRICK De SmetNice walk,too bad about the last part along the dike, but the cozy cafes make up for a lot
Wednesday, May 27, 2020 by R.V.Always nice to start your hike with a ferry (in Schellebelle).
And then (as usual) a clearly marked route. Beautiful nature, sometimes a bit boring on a dike, but the end at the cattle, made up for a lot. It is a pity that in these Corona times one cannot go somewhere for a drink, because it does look cosy there. Let's come back again.
