Finally, keep in mind that the Code du Randonneur wallon (code of Walloon hiker) governs each of your moves in our forests.

 

1.stay on the paths open to flow, so that you will not trouble the balance between flora and fauna. Marked out routes will help you to discover our forests.

2.THE FLOW OF POWER-DRIVEN VEHICULES is exclusively limited to open roads. Walkers enjoy the serenity of the forest. Avoid shouting and making any noise that could disturb animals.

3.KEEP YOUR DOG ON A LEASH or leave it home. Your faithful friend could disturb brooding or frighten forest animals just because of its smell.

4.AVOID MUTILATING TREES. Limit your picking and do certainly not cut any protected species.

5.REFRAIN FROM LIGHTING A FIRE: fire hazard is more important than it seems.

6.IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN TO CAMP IN FOREST. You can find camping sites in the area.

7.BE CAREFUL DURING HUNTING SEASON, RESPECT PROHIBITION SIGNS: they are here for your safety.

8.TAKE YOUR WASTE WITH YOU. The forest will remain clean and welcoming after you left.

9.RIVERS ARE ALSO LIVELY (with animals and plants). Do not disturb them.
