This trip takes you from Leuze-en-Hainaut, an old hosiery city and world-famous brewing centre, to Basècles, a quarrying centre known in particular for its black marble.
This was all it took for a railway line to link the two cities. Line No 86, which was later to become a RAVeL path …. and which we are now recommending to you. It takes you along a route that is rural, sporty and modern, through fields and pastures.

It can be sporty for a number of reasons: because of the long, straight lines swept by the wind and/or bathed in sunlight, but also because there is a Vita fitness trail in the first part of the route.
It can also tackle issues that are major concerns these days: it leads past wind turbines and one of the most efficient energy recovery centres.


The route:
The route follows its own safe path along the Line 86 RAVeL.
Smooth, alternating asphalt and concrete.
Height difference:
Ascent of 42 metres. Imperceptible incline.
Full directional signs are in place along the entire route.
