GR 14 draws an unpredictable line through the Belgian Ardennes from north to south. The trail is an endless source of discoveries if you like deep forests, wide open panoramic views, river valleys and quiet rural villages.
You only really get to know the Ardennes... on foot!

The Walloon GR 14 hiking trail is part of a much longer French GR trail that starts in Paris and reaches the Belgian Ardennes, passing through the Brie, the Champagne and the Argonne regions. The Belgian part was developed from 1988 on when the French trail was extended to La-Roche-en-Ardenne. In 2007 a second extension went up to Malmedy.
10 years later, GR 14 was once again thoroughly redesigned and got another extension, this time up to Monschau, just over the German border. A new topoguide has also been published in 2018. The new gpx track can be downloaded for free from the website of the Walloon GR organisation.
From now on the small German town Monschau is connected to Sedan in France by a white-red ribbon swaying through the Belgian Ardennes from north to south. The trail guides the hiker through deep forests and along rivers such as the Warche, the Amblève, the Lienne, the Ourthe, the Lesse, the Our and the Semois. It passes by Monschau, Malmedy, Stavelot, Trois-Ponts, Lierneux, La Roche, Saint-Hubert, Bouillon and Sedan.
