Friday, March 19, 2021 by Gerrit Gerrit van hauteNice walk but walk them in the other direction then you have at the end about 4 kilometers of beautiful nature along the Zwalm Brook. Indeed unfortunate almost all roads are paved but nevertheless....

Monday, August 10, 2020 by Dominique DerveauxBeautiful hike, large sections in the forest allowing plenty of shade on hot summer days. Also feasible for the less experienced hiker.

Tuesday, July 28, 2020 by D.D.Almost the entire route is on paved trails. The first part along the Zwalm on a pedestrian/bicycle path. Beautiful, atmospheric corners along the Zwalm. Indeed many eating places, but on a Tuesday in late July, only 1 open (at nr 10). From nr 10 the route runs almost entirely on streets. Quiet though, and except for the part between 3 and 2 with not too many buildings. All in all an OK trail, but certainly not among the more interesting ones.

Sunday, June 28, 2020 by M.K.Don't be discouraged by the first part of the hike, which runs along the track, because afterwards you dive into nature along the course of the Zwalm river. Until nr 10 you'll pass several places to eat or drink. Once there you walk between fields with beautiful views. With occasional slight inclines. The starting and finishing point is also situated at a restaurant.
