This walk on the high plains of the Croix Scaille follows the steps of the Maquisards, the resistance fighters who found shelter here during WW2. Climate is often harsh, tundra-like. The Millenaire Tower suffered greatly from it and had to be rebuilt several times.
Departure: the Millénaire Tower (Croix-Scaille) Distance: 5 km (possibility to combine this walk with another one - 12 km in total) Level: easy Signing: red rectangles
If you were to draw a straight line on an atlas northward from the Massif Central in France to the North Pole, the only area of high ground the line crosses is the Ardennes, shared between Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany – but mainly belonging to Wallonia, the southern part of Belgium!
