This is a wonderful group walk again. The group was small, it's a shame I couldn't be there. Poor Sebastian with all these fit women, but I think he survived well. If the temperatures don't rise too high, I will definitely take part again next time.
Great pictures! Much better weather than last time.
The atmosphere was good, I see in the photos. I hope everyone had a lot of fun. 📷👍🤗🙋♂️

Today we had a group walk with the hiking group "Hiking in the Euregio".
We started at 10 a.m. with 12 people from the parking lot in Gulpen. The average age of the group had dropped considerably; Torsten had brought his daughter Liel with them. We immediately climbed firmly onto the Gulpener Berg and turned into the beautiful hilly landscape after the campsite. In addition to beautiful horses, Verloren Kost also had some great Lakenvelder cattle with this characteristic white band. We went through a cool piece of forest, then along the golf courses and across a large meadow to Hoeve Landsrade. From there the route led through beautiful valleys, hills and forest with very old trees to Slenaken. We were halfway now, so it was time for a break with coffee and cake in the De Boswachter restaurant.
From Slenaken we went along the peaceful, babbling Gulp brook through meadows, forest, farms and quiet country lanes with a breathtaking view, to the imposing Neubourg Castle. This is being restored, but there is still a lot to do.
From there it is still a short distance to Gulpen. There 5 people traveled home, while the other 7 enjoyed a delicious meal in the Greek restaurant Athene in Gulpen.Rain had been predicted, but it remained dry and mostly sunny throughout the walk. A brief shower of rain fell during the meal. So excellent planning.I would like to thank all participants for their participation and the good atmosphere during the walk. It was another good day activity! 👍😊🙋♂️

Today was excellent hiking weather and we took a nice walk from Bévercé (above Malmedy) through the spectacular valley of the Trô Maret. We start at Ferme Libert and, to our surprise, appeared - without hiking advertising! - no fewer than 20 participants at the start. After the long break because of Corona, the beautiful route and the good weather, everyone wanted to go.
The walk was very varied. Along the wild river of the Trô Maret over narrow rocky paths, where the path was secured with steel wires in some places. Then through the forest and over the wooden walkways of the Venn, where the Trô Maret rises. On the way back we drank coffee at Chez Remy in Xhoffraix, followed by a wonderful route through the forest, past a large quarry, the Warche and the Trô Maret. After that we wanted to eat something at the Peak Restaurant in Sourbrodt, but there was no room for this large group. Then most went home, but with 5 people we found a table in the Signal de Botrange restaurant. We ate and drank something there and returned home satisfied and tired.It was a great walk, the group was (a little too) big, but fun. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed nature and the sun.
And Lee, thanks again for planning this unforgettable and amazing tour! 🤗👍Many thanks to all participants for the pleasant day and the good atmosphere. It's a shame that the restaurant didn't work out, but we'll definitely make up for it next time. 👍🤗🙋♂️
