Description
Waypoints (0)

This trail takes you from the starting point (summit of the Bosberg, well known hill of the Tour of Flanders cycling itinerary) around the Raspaillebos. You will have an opportunity to visit 'The Helix', a nature-educative centre located halfway. On the way back, it goes upwards to reach the top of the Bosberg again, where you can take a well-earned break at the local pub/restaurant, called El Faro (the lighttower), although there is no lighttower to be seen. There is also a (small) campground for caravans at the top (mostly resident people).

One of my favourite forrests to go for a hike in the region. I find it easiest to do the hike with the clock. After doing the hike you can also go for a drink at B&B Hof van Lier which is only open in the weekends.
