In the Chimay region


You leave the Saint-Remy forest via the Rue des Sarts and make for a much more urban atmosphere in the Principality of Chimay, with its stunning castle, which is a miniature replica of the Fontainebleau. After a brief spell on the RAVeL network, you will be amazed by the Virelles pond, a magnificent natural setting. This nature reserve boasts a wide range of habitats, rich vegetation and various birds. You may be fortunate enough to encounter one of our white storks. You then pass through Bois Robert forest in the direction of Froidchapelle. Then, make your way towards the Cerfontaine aerodrome, but not without checking out the Hamaides forest. The alternate route bypasses Chimay from the west and via the RAVeL network. Beginners are advised to avoid crossing the Rue du Lac near the Virelles pond, which is quite busy.
