The ride commences in Walloon Verviers and follows signposted "Baraque-Michel", a touristic area next to Signal de Botrange.

Directly after the village of Verviers the way routes through a steep wooden area...

...and proceeds to the small spot of Jalhay.

Afterwards there is a cycling path alongside road N672 leading for many ascending kilometers straight on...

...and to the 9,000 yrs old area "Het Hoog Plateau".

A final turn to the left behind Baraque-Michel...

...leads to the pleasant highmoor scenery...

...and to today's destination Signal de Botrange.
