The route is fully signposted with thematic signs (no nodes).
Explore the beautiful Leiemeersen area between the Ringvaart canal and the villages of Drongen and Afsnee. The Assels nature reserve is an important meadow bird area along some old farms, such as 't Goed der Kaeksmede. Walk along the Piereput further via the Afsnee ferry and along the Leiedijk.
Tuesday, May 25, 2021 by Frank Van ackerBeautiful walk in the Leie region. A bit too short for us, but combined with the Drongen-Keuze walk you get to 16 km. ( With as nice extra, the ferry in Afsnee! ). Highly recommended!
Sunday, December 6, 2020 by F.L.short but beautiful route partly along the River Lys. Hexagonal signs clear and numerous. Highly recommended!

Friday, October 23, 2020 by H.L.Too bad, didn't see any signage and still dawdled a bit ...
Wednesday, September 2, 2020 by C.B.Very nice quiet route. First part mostly in the green, second part along the Leie. Maybe take a drink with you, because only along the Leie there is one opportunity to have a drink.
