Description

One of the long distance routes in Belgium that links the capital Brussel with Luik in the Ardennen region. It starts right in the center of Brussel as a tourist trip in the town connecting the parks of the city. Next is a passage trough the large forest region next to Brussel (Zoniënwoud). After that a long stretch of light hills with a variation of agriculture and small forest sections. The last 30 kms runs parallel to the river 'de Maas', connecting the many very nice valleys. The finish is in Luik, which is certainly worth a visit, the train station is an extra. The track isn't technical or brutal so it is quite runnable and easy to reach with public transport.
