    One of Belgium’s most picturesque streams flows through Sedoz: the Ninglinspo, the only stream in Wallonia to be an “exceptional natural heritage” site.

    Right from the start of this beautiful circuit, the ride along the Ninglinspo is enchanting. But, shortly after a ford, the path rises steeply. The summit can’t come soon enough!

    At the top we are close to the hamlet of Vert-Buisson, which, in the Middle Ages, was a welcome stopping point for wayfarers on an ancient road called La Vecquée (from évêque, bishop), which formed the link between the ecclesiastical Principalities of Liège and Stavelot. A long path through woodland ends at a hamlet called, aptly, Ville-au-Bois. Leaving this, we follow a fast-fl owing stream, the Chefna, as its chases its wild path between the rocks.


    The descent goes on and on – and what a pleasure it is! This is unquestionably one of the finest tracks in Belgium.

    After this shakedown we come to the Fonds de Quareux, mighty blocks of quartzite lying scattered in the bed of the River Amblève – a fitting end to this magnificent if very demanding journey.

    Good to know!

    “La Côte de La Redoute” is a famous hill-climb, rising 161 m in 1.7 km, that features in the celebrated classic cycling race Liège- Bastogne-Liège. It is located in Sougné- Remouchamps (Aywaille).
