About

Trail Walking of 11.3 km to be discovered at Wallonia, Hainaut, Chimay. This trail is proposed by Desrumaux.

Description

Situé à la limite de la Calestienne et de la Fagne, l'étang de Virelles constitue l'une des plus vastes zones humides de Wallonie (116 hectares). Il s'agit en réalité d'un étang aménagé au 16ème siècle pour les besoins de l'industrie métallurgique locale. Une simple digue, construite en travers de la vallée du Ry Nicolas, a suffi pour former ce vaste plan d'eau dont la profondeur maximale atteint environ 2 mètres. Le trop-plein de l'étang se déverse dans l'Eau Blanche, au pied du bois de Blaimont. ®Départ: Parking du Lac de Virelles.
