This bike ride at the edge of the Pays de Herve feature hilly landscapes, alternating with hedged farmlands and grazing fields.

Leaving from the Vesdre in Vaux-sous-Chèvremont, take the RAVel. This former railway line carried coal from Fléron to Germany and metals from Plombières to the Meuse basin.

Nature has claimed the rail tracks back, making it a peaceful path to cycle on. As you leave the green belt after the Basse-Ransy mine heaps, you will discover the hedged farmlands of the Pays de Herve a little after passing the pretty Sainte-Anne chapel.

It commemorates the death of 5 soldiers from Brittany, killed in 1794. The trail then goes through Romsée: the panorama near Chaumont overlooks the Vesdre valley.

The itinerary wanders around the Caldifontaine hill, going from one hamlet to another, passing the Rochette equestrian centre. The path continues down towards the river, which you will follow back to Vaux-sous-Chèvremon, after admiring the remarkable trees of the Hauster Park.
