Train walks

The distances vary between 18 and 32 km's and you can download the GPS track from their website https://www.groteroutepaden.be/nl/treinstappers

Tips

Just leaving the trainstation in Lierde, you are passing an artisanal bakery "de broden van Liesbet". Liesbet, the baker, is doing all the baking in full view and specialises in sourdough bread. As Lierde is not  far away from Geraardsbergen, they also have their own made "Mattetaarten", a speciality of the region.
