3 beeches and an oak - all over a hundred years old.

Further on, you will get to the pretty chapel of Try-au-Chêne. You are now in the Brabant countryside near Bousval with quite varied landscapes. Cycle down to the village, through which the Dyle flows. The path then goes up to reach the Thy forest.
