This is a group for anyone interested in short distance hiking around 12 km. We will explore the territory reachable by public transportation from Brussels. All skill level and age are suitable. it's a mixture between walking in nature, city and chill out.
After Wallonia and Brussel it's now time to the Flemish part.
I went to this place for the touristic attraction of the road crossing the lake under the water level and the Bokrijk open air Museum, but there is much more to explore in this beautiful area, there is a magic flavor around. Many wild lakes and hidden path in the forest. The spirit of the group will enhance even more the nice and peaceful landscape.
The waiting time and transportation time on the train/bus is part of the experience and we will enjoy this time as much as the walking time.
I chose to go on Saturday because on Sunday there are fewer bus in the afternoon from Kiewit Kinderboerderij.
I'll be more precise next week with details. For the moment I give you the planning and logistic information.
