Hiking along the Rijtgracht Avelgem

Posted on

We had a walk along the  “Rijtgracht” in Avelgem and encountered no cyclists on this hiking trail!

It is a narrow path between the Scheldt marshes and the fields.

At the bottom of the valley Scheldt runs the Rijt or Rijtgracht which drains the fields.

In this short movie you can clearly see that it is a narrow path and completely in nature. You have to make your way through the flowers.

In this part of the hike you’re in the middle of the meadows and you have a great view of the countryside.
