This loop will take you between the Gileppe lake and Limbourg, one of the prettiest villages in Wallonia.

You will get to cycle on the Gileppe Lake dam, built in 1857 to secure water for the wool industry. Look out, nearby, for the impressive 13 meters high lion guarding it! The path then takes you through meadows lined with hedgerows in the Pays de Goé.

In the distance now appears a twisted bell tower, sculpted to resist the wind, often quite powerful by the Fagnes. Limbourg, built on a rocky outcrop, is now in sight. Continue through the Baelen pastures until you reach the lake again,
