The trails of the Valley of the Hoegne stream, between Hockai and the Belleheid Bridge, are under the patronage of the Belgian King Albert II, and the valley is rated among the most beautiful of Belgium. We haven't hiked all valleys in Belgium, but we tend to agree. It is an absolute highlight.

Almost as beautiful is the valley of the Statte, a little more quiet but equally romantic.

The network of small and wild streams, narrow footpaths, unspoilt nature, and the mixture of deciduous forests and open moorlands is second to none.

The hiking times are difficult to state, mainly on the grounds of the many photo-stops along the way.
Especially along the Hoegne, we met several groups of photographers who were busy capturing the atmosphere with long exposure of the cascades.

Don’t miss the short excursion to the top of the Rocher de Bilisse, a vertical piece of slate. There are no views from the top, but it's good for your ego.

For the very energetic, we recommend to combine this trail with the '3 Torrents and what felt like 100 bridges' to a grand tour of everything this area has to offer.

For unknown reasons, my GPS recorded all elevations about 300 meter lower than they are. This doesn't matter for the calculations of total elevation gain and loss.
