(0,45 km) Take a path on the left (before the chapel). It is opposite a plaque that says “Bois Pinchet”.
(0,8 km) Where the tracks cross (place called “Étoile”), take the first track on the right. On the paved track, turn left. When you come out of the wood, turn left. Carry on straight. Follow the symbol Yellow. Turn right at the crossroads: gravel path. Follow the symbol yellow. At the fork, turn right towards some houses. Go straight on along this paved road, you will pass a farm on your left. At the bottom of the slope, leave the paved road and turn left on to a dirt track. Carry on straight. Turn left when you come to the farmland track.
(4 km) At the T-junction: take the road to the left towards the hamlet of Haute-Heuval. Take the “La Roche-Tangissart 2” paved road to the left.
(5,7 km) At a bend in the road, at the foot of a sign by the ‘Fluxys’ company, take the first path to the right at a sharp angle; there is a sign here that says “sauf charroi agricole et forestier” (except farm and forest vehicles).
Go over a crossroads and continue straight on. At the T-junction, turn left (the property on the right is private).
At the next T-junction, turn right and go past the farm (called ‘Sartage’). Turn left when you reach the road. Take the first track on the left (gravel) before the hedge around the water tower and go towards the fir wood. Follow this long track.

At the crossroads, turn left along a narrow path (“Zone prévention eau potable”). At the bottom, take a wide track to the right (“Zone prévention eau potable”). Continue straight (going up) and ignore the 2 tracks on the left. Just before the tarmac, take the path to the left that runs along a house fence and carry on straight. At the T-junction, turn left onto a gravel path between the houses for a few metres. You then leave the gravel path to go straight down a path between garden fences. When you get to the road, go up to the right. At a bend, just before no. 45, turn left (“Sentier touristique”). Follow it straight between the fences.
(10,6 km) When the path ends, cross the road and go past the old school. Cross a second street and go straight on into Rue Sainte-Gertrude. After no. 4A, continue straight on. The street turns into a track.

Turn left and follow the railway line. Follow the track that goes down under the railway line. Keep to the right and continue along, following the symbol yellow. Cross the railway line at the level crossing and carry on straight. Just before a private property, turn left along a small wooded path.
