Zone de la chaîne des terrils - 4,6 km


Spoil Tips Range 4.6 km (2.5 mi.)
The Bayemont spoil tip : balcony-like path, on the canal side. From there, you will have a unique perspective on the spoil tips range : you will see ten of them ! Wallonia as a whole takes pride on 1.200 spoil tips, among which 340 of interest. Admire the panoramic view over the West Gate from the summit plateau. The balcony-like path on the canal side
overlooks the Providence industrial site. From summit to summit, the GR briefly crosses neighbourhoods and wastelands. Humble hidden plateau within its poplar trees curtain, St-Théodore West spoil tip links neighbourhoods. From the summit of St-Théodore East, have a look at the remarkable views (K) on the steel industry and high furnace n°4 remnants. Finally, dominating the city, the Piges spoil tip forms a green alley linking Dampremy’s quarters and
the city centre. We recommend you to walk back and forth to the summit for a last panorama of the metropolis. The GR slides down along the spoil tip’s slope to a car park and goes straight on through a strange opening between two walls :
Adrien’s door, a passage between the city and nature — a place where anything is possible.
