The route is fully signposted with nodes.
Lake Donk in Berlare is one of the oldest tourist attractions in Berlare, thanks to the diligent labor of local peat cutters, without whom this lake would never have been there. We follow their trail through Berlare Broek, a gem of a nature reserve along a forgotten meander from thousands of years ago.

Saturday, April 17, 2021 by Jo MarceloBeautiful varied hike. Just had to search a bit at the start, kp 9 is not signposted. Apart from a small stretch of muddy path, it was well walkable everywhere. At the end of the hike we were able to eat some smoutebollen at a stall at the lake, which completed a beautiful day. We enjoyed it.
