Saturday, November 20, 2021 by P.M.This is an OK hike with nice and not so nice sections. A bit too many concrete lanes with occasional traffic.

Wednesday, November 3, 2021 by Geert BerckmoesNice hike; it had rained a lot the days before hence there was mud on certain parts of the hike. Just put on sturdy shoes and it was remedied. Minus point : the tavern on the hiking trail was closed.

Saturday, August 14, 2021 by C.D.A quiet walk, without many inclines. The beginning is a bit too much in and around villages, but after that it quickly improves. Landscape changes from open fields to forest and quiet roads. Indeed Junction 81-66 is very hard to see. Good, sturdy athletic shoes seem adequate if the weather has been dry for a few days.

Sunday, December 6, 2020 by Ann SimoensWe have already walked a lot and can confirm that this loop is really very beautiful. Congratulations to Town of Zottegem for this successful walking trail.

Saturday, November 21, 2020 by Tom Van wichelenI found the walk just a little too short and expanded by taking points 65, 64 and 63 between 66 and 67, and that was and very successful extension. The walk then comes to 12.4 km

Wednesday, November 4, 2020 by F.L.Very nice nature hike, one of the most successful I have done this year. Quiet environment where one can take nice landscape photos. Highly recommended! One small note: as a starting place I put Paddestraat 26 Zottegem in my GPS and I ended up totally somewhere else. I parked my car at the municipal cemetery.
