You cross the Mira Bridge and go along the Groot Broek to the Sombeekse Meersen. On the dike you walk along the Meulendijkbroek and you come to the banks of the Durme. You now follow the towpath for a long time along the mud flats and salt marshes of the Durme. Just before the buildings, the route returns and goes along a wide dirt road in the direction of higher-lying fields and meadows. You follow old historic roads here, such as the Sterrewegel, which takes you via swing gates and bridges to Sombeke. In Sombeke you will come to the Sint-Rochuskerk and you can admire the bronze statue of the famous painter Edmond Verstraeten. You now continue through the Liatuin, a former monastery garden and past the castle of Sombeek, which is privately owned. On the dike it goes back in the direction of the starting point.
Take cyclists on the towpath into account.
