The trail

Cycling along the stream proves really enchanting. The path will get rather steep after the fording. Hold on tight, the top is not so far!

Once you reach the ridge, you will be near Vert-Buisson. This peaceful place was, during the Middle-Ages, a welcome break for travellers using the Vecquée, a road between Liège and Stavelot. This long journey through a forest ends at Ville-au-Bois, an isolated hamlet in the woods. Once passed, follow the rather wild Chefna stream.

The slope going down looks endless but it's such a wonderful feeling of freedom and the landscape is beautiful too...

Towards the end, you will see the Fonds de Quareux, impressive quartzite blocks scattered in the Amblème river, indicating the end of this memorable (but energetic) trail.

Good to know

The La Redoute hilly road is part of the oldest cycling race of the region, the Liège-Bastogne-Liège (1,7 km – drop of 161 m). You will find it in Sougné-Remouchamp in the commune
