Kids Day Hike: Terrils in Charleroi

Fosse du Bièrau
On the "Fosse du Bièrau"

Date: Sunday, 6th of June, 2021

Path: Own route

Distance: 12,3 kilometres

Ascent: 138m

Descent: 138m

For this hike, which I organised for the Facebook group "Hiking in Belgium", I specifically aimed at children with some hiking experience and their parents, given the distance. The hike took us along the terrils of Les Piges (Dampremy), Couloutes, Saint-Charles and the Fosse du Biérau. From each of these mining terrils, you have an excellent, mostly 360° panoramic view of the region around Charleroi.

Attention: Walking sticks are recommended on the sometimes very steep descents of the terrils.
