Quatre Fils Aymon

This walk goes through the forest of Rulles which, together with the forest of Anlier and Chenel, forms the largest beech forest in Belgium. The black stork breeds in the forest, but deer, roe deer and wild boar also have their habitat here. The name of the walk refers to the old song of the four sons of Aymon, who traveled from place to place to sing short stories.

Rulles forest.

The walk starts at the station in Marbehan and the first part you walk on a paved road. You pass under the railway. Via a dirt road you walk to the first walking tree Nobohan. The tour through the forest starts here and you follow the Le Mandebras stream for a long time. At the Hastori walking tree you leave the stream and walk in the direction of the motorway. The section next to the motorway is not the best part of the route. You go back into the forest again and just before the Rue Du Bois you arrive at the hiking tree Les 4 Fils Aymon where there is a large dead oak. You follow the Rue Du Bois for about 600 meters. At the Ruisseau Du Wez walking tree, turn left and follow the unpaved forest road. The Ruisseau De Pachi runs parallel to the path and you see beautiful strips of royal ferns. You leave the forest and enter a more open landscape. You come out on the Rue Du Bois again and at the Devant Prochane walking tree you turn right. You go along the edge of the forest and then walk through the forest again. At the walking tree Vachiere you go straight on. You cross a stream twice and eventually come back to the Nobohan walking tree. From here you follow the route of the way out to the departure point.
