The walking route goes to a first old Leie river branch through the valley of the Plaatsebeek. On the way, barns and flax mills remind of the rich flax history of the region. The walker reaches a woodier area via fields, log paths and grassy paths. The hunting path along the Leie then leads to the three-tier lock of  Ooigem. A second old Leie river arm leads the walker along the castle of Ooigem and the historical homestead Munkenhof. The route is easy to follow thanks to a clear map and the hexagonal signs to be found along the way (all text on the map is in Dutch).
