The hike starts at the signposted parking lot of the Hotel-Restaurant 'Ferme Libert' just outside Beverce.

The trail is best known for the wild valley of the Tros Marets - undoubtedly a most photogenic scenery. Here, the path is secured for a few meters with a steel rope giving the uninitiated a slightly alpine feel. This stretch is rather short, but more delights await the hiker further on.

The board walks through the Fraineu Venn are very nicely done, and offer nice views over the foothills of the Venn.

Towards the end, the trail turns to make an additional loop, which we strongly recommend not to cut short. It first leads to a hut 'red water', and then follows the stream Le Targnon. This is a most beautiful stretch. It passes the monument of the Baron Leon Fredericq (1851-1935), a professor who started botanical research in the Venn.
