Walking marker points in Picardy Wallonia
To discover Wapi on foot, there are 700km of walking trails, including a network of 350km of marker pointed routes, connected to the trails in the Flemish Ardennes and Leiestreek. The 350km signposted trail covers the Mont-de-L’Enclus, Frasnes-Lez-Anvaing, Ellezelles, Flobecq, Northern Celles and Northern Ath municipalities.
Just like a road network, the walking routes are interconnected. Each intersection is numbered and given a maroon signpost which displays the intersection number (marker points) and the arrow pointing towards the next numbered intersections. You can freely create your routes, from one marker point to the next, following the trails and small country roads.Explore the network on the dynamic map
