Thursday, February 29, 2024 by N.D.Hiking after rain = not recommended. Very muddy and dangerous ! Got stuck in a pit up to the knee myself - scary. Had to walk on a field several times - crawl through barbed wire.... So start this hike only after a long dry period !

Highly recommended" someone wrote...We can certainly agree with that. Just after point 53 the little road was not passable but we could walk on the stubble field.

Monday, May 10, 2021 by Archibald HaddockA hike that offered a lot of great views. Even after a week of rain, the mud was not too bad. We had to watch out for the 200 meters after junction 53. There you walk on a narrow and very uneven path between two fields. The path is fenced off on both sides with barbed wire. Best not to stumble, it will certainly cost you a few scratches!

Saturday, December 26, 2020 by Caroline De CockQuiet environment and good alternation between quiet and paved roads. But indeed firm shoes with grip needed, because can be slippery

Wednesday, December 2, 2020 by Lena FaictVery nice hike, many small paths with the accompanying bogs. Here and there it is better to move up 1 meter and step through the meadow.

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 by B.N.Beautiful route but muddy and slippery in the fall, especially from node 35. A stick and shoes with good grip are needed here. Quiet between fields. Sloping at times though.

Friday, October 23, 2020 by D.V.Wonderful nature hike. Lots of variety, mainly "slow roads", beautiful landscapes. Due to the ascending and descending you can still count on an hour and a half.
