GR412 - Boucle noire

Description

A further 26 km circuit at the GR412, for the most demanding hikers. Extending as far as Charleroi railway station, the circuit passes by particularly attractive places, such as the Marchienne and Monceau castles, the Martinet site and slag heaps and the Dampremy-La Docherie chain of slag heaps. The tour includes climbing the four slag heaps connected to each other by passages, paths

and short crossings over secondary roads. The tour is signposted with slabs recovered from a wall from the 1980s. The triangularshaped slabs evoke the shape of the slag heaps.

The map of the course is available at the Tourist Office of the Pays de Charleroi or Eden.
