WHAT IS A GR or GRP?
Long distance hiking trails, or GR, are long distances that can be walked over several days. In Wallonia, there are three main categories of GR:
- long-distance routes, with an interregional or international vocation. This type of GR generally follows a fairly direct route. Examples include the GR 16 Sentier de la Semois or the GR 12 Amsterdam - Brussels - Paris.
- themed routes, such as the GR 412 Sentier des Terrils.
- regional discovery routes, known as GR de Pays, forming large loops of varying degrees of winding.
In addition, the SGR have created the 'Randonnées en Boucle', one-day circuits of 20 to 25 kilometres, based on the GR paths. As well as the Family Walks, which are an invitation to the pleasures of hiking and the discovery of the natural, cultural and recreational heritage
THE GR TOUR DE LA FAMENNE IN THE HEART OF THE GEOPARK?
This fourth edition is part of a new generation of the network. Like other long-distance loops, the GR 577 "Tour de la Famenne" has become a GR de Pays, or GRP 577, signposted in , and is associated with the UNESCO Famenne-Ardenne World Geopark to invite hikers to discover the many assets of this picturesque region with its multiple landscapes. Following an overhaul of the network in the north of the province of Luxembourg, the GRP 577 takes over the Wéris - Érezée - Hotton section of the GR 57.
