Tuesday, August 8, 2023 by Wendy SchuurmansIn itself a nice route, but several times detours that are not always well indicated... So we had to search... One part of the detour is a metal bridge with those grates, the dog cannot cross it, so we had to carry it. Too bad... Unfortunately also no parachutes seen today.
Monday, March 28, 2022 by G.V.The hike does not start out very promising, but once out of the village center you enter a hollow road, from node 97 you follow points of the GR. These are always top for me. At hiking point 338 it went wrong, wasn't very clear to me if I had to take left or straight on. Consequence straight on, so don't do it. Beautiful hike, nice variety.
Monday, October 18, 2021 by Carine JaekenA nice hike even though there were several paved roads to walk on, but we don't have a problem with that. Also occasional climbs and descents. In our case, the stretch between Junctions 98 and 97 was interrupted, but a detour was announced in time. Paratroopers by the dozen and that was also a sight to behold. No boots needed
