A totally unprepared 15 km Sunday afternoon hike passing the woods of Vinderhoute, the Zuurhoek pond and the Oude Kale creek. In February 2020, Evert and I have packrafted this part of Oude Kale, but at this moment water levels are far from sufficient for such a venture.
Vinderhoute is a community to the northwest of Ghent that is surrounded by quite a bit of greenery and several castle grounds. The area is currently being developed for outdoor recreation. Last week, the central wooded zone was opened to the public, after having been acquired from a private land owner some time ago.
We make a 36 km family cycling & hiking tour that takes us from home to Vinderhoute and back, passing scenic sections of the Leie river around Drongen. In Vinderhoute, we explore some of the new hiking trails.
