Pleasant walk in the beautiful nature in and around Ronquires, known for, yes, the sloping surface. Although the latter is not covered on this pleasant trip, a visit to the world-famous ship lifts is worthwhile. The area we walk through is very green with many hills, beautiful valleys and small typical Walloon villages. The tour starts in Virginal-Samme, a small hamlet near Ronquires. You notice that there was some industry here in the distant past, but this has since become all faded glory. Part of the hike is therefore about the old Ecaussines -Ronquières - Tubize railway line. Via Ronquires it goes through some beautiful country roads and paths straight through the beautiful Bois de la Houssière where you can go hiking. The route also goes partly along the GR12. When we come back to Virginal-Samme you must pay attention when you reach Rue Emille Nils! After 130m it turns right along what at first glance appears to be a 'private' street. You really have to be practical about the residents' terrace. Yet this is a public road and the path continues down into the bushes. A very pleasant walk in a beautiful region.
