Needs prior online booking
May 2021
No idea whether this walk is nice: we found out that on our rainy day in May, the parc was fully "booked" and we could not enter. A disspointing experience after an hour drive from Brussels.

Family friendly walk with history

Family friendly walk with a breath taking view. Roman buildings reconstructed and possible to enter caves and even see bats.

Good short hike
Aug 2020
The walk in the park is indicated with arrows, and it is a one-way course to follow. The walk is easily accessible, there are also a lot of stairs: first you climb a little bit, then you decend to the Lesse and then you climb back up again. When you get to the Lesse, there is a kind of take-away place for food and drinks and there is a very clean bathroom to use (free for all). It is a rather short walk (4 km) but ideal to make with children. Lots of shade as well. Not a lot of people in numbers but when compared to hiking in the area it was crowded in some places. Make sure to book online in advance, admission is 5 EUR.

A walk which has it all!
Jul 2020 • Family
From arrival to the tiny cabin, getting warm-hearted introduction to the park to the walk itself with some prehistoric, Roman and medieval aspects combined with nature’s beauty of rocks, river and forest, to a lovely stop (wauw!!!) for a drink next to the river to the possibility to “explore” caves , to great sights ... this park has is all. Even on a rainy day it got us fully enthused.

One thing preventing the 5 stars only: the number of visitors finding it perfectly normal to visit a nature’s reserve park with a dog. This truly can’t be the goal? It’s a wildlife reserve! And the walk is not really dog-proof. Unfortunately neither are my children who spend their walk anxiously looking over their shoulder to see if the dogs were approaching. To all the kind dog owners we meet everywhere: of course your and most dogs are truly kind, but that does not take away the fear for children.

Beautiful walk and very interesting for the whole family
Oct 2019 • Family
Our family loved this walk (7yrs, 9yrs and 10yrs) - all the caves to explore and the track was uneven and steep in some parts which made it interesting/fun. Definitely recommend.

Interesting walk, lovely countryside but steep in places
Sep 2019 • Friends
A nice ramble through the woody hillsides above the river. Well signed with information boards about the
various neolithic, Roman and medieval remains. Note very steep paths and steps in places which might be slippery if wet. Took us about 90 mins so not a major hike but there is some climbing. Worth a visit.

Nice walk in the forest
Aug 2019 • Family
We started the day with this nice tour around the hills. It is really clean, sign are clear and the cave are nice surprises. Strongly recommended with kids with the lamp of your mobile. Explore them. Nice bar in the middle of the way where you meet the kayakistes.

It is a very nice a beautiful walk
Aug 2019
It takes about 1h30 to see it all. You have a couple of nice views and things to see during the walk (about 12 i believe). Some viewpoints, some old roman walls and a fully restored roman bath house. They rebuilt the bath house according to old plans and even field tested it to make sure it worked just like during the roman times: they filled the baths with water and heated the water with wood for several days. The result was that they had warm water baths with a constant temperature.
Along the track -which is very well marked- you'll also visit caves (i.e. some very ancient burial cave)
It is a very nice a beautiful walk. Almost at the end you can enjoy some ice-cream or drink(s) at a riverbank bar.

Gorgeous scenery - worth a visit
Aug 2019 • Family
It costs €4 for adults and €1 for children and is well worth it. The walk is a set route you do from start to finish as you come out a different part to where you went in so I don’t think you can just walk part of it.

The hike has lots of steps up and down and is steep in many areas so is not for anyone with mobility issues or buggies.
The views are fabulous from many points of the walk. Along the route are viewpoints, caves and roman ruins. The kids really enjoyed these areas, in addition to the walk. We took lots of photos.

At some points of the walk there could be some better signage as you’d turn one way for a viewpoint or cave and the other way to continue the walk. We got used to this and split up at each “junction” to see which way was which as we didn’t want to miss any of the caves, before we continued on.

The cafe/pub is about 2/3 way round with just the climb back up to the car park. We just had a drink. We could see into the kitchen and saw how many flies were around uncovered food which put us off a bit.

Overall a great location and we really enjoyed the time we spent there.

Beautiful hiking park
Aug 2018 • Family
It's a beautiful nature park with a big hiking route. Halfway through the route is a little 'pub' next to the water where you can take a breather and drink something. The path itself has many stairs and steep hills, so wheelchair users, people with kids strollers and people with crutches can't really do this. It's a nice path with lots of cave entrances which you can (most of the time) enter. Along the way you pass an insect 'farm' (just some structures build to help bees and butterflies nest), and there are some signs teaching you things from the environment. The route has really pretty look out points too. I'd really recommend this if you like hiking, or want a peaceful and quiet activity.
