This hike through the valley of the Trôs-Marets near Malmedy is breathtaking, yet suitable for families and dog walkers too.

Geographically, the route is a direct neighbour of the moor landscape of the High Fens, so it has any amount of variety and many kinds of landscape to offer. Parts of it go via the long-distance hiking trail GR56.

It begins and ends at the hotel-restaurant Ferme Libert, right on the downhill course. There are plenty of parking spaces available. An information panel provides the most important details of the hike and a signpost marks the start. At the beginning, the trail is mainly on paths with lots of rocky sections. Below, you can already see the wild river, which provides a superb photographic motif.

Via a little bridge you reach the river valley, and from here the hike is pure enjoyment. The trail becomes an exciting path, made safer in some places with steel cables. All the time, it stays at the waterside, as you make your way between rocks and stones. Then it continues uphill, and gradually you leave the river and its valley behind. At the top there is a deciduous wood with some possibilities for a picnic.

Via a typical hiking trail you reach the Targnon stream, also an offshoot of the High Fens. The trail along the stream becomes a path again in places and via more open terrain you return to Ferme Libert.

Author’s recommendation

A stopover at the restaurant at Ferme Libert rounds off the hike. The specialities include game dishes and crêpes or Belgian waffles. Later on, you can enjoy a regional beer either there or in Malmedy in the Place Albert 1er.
