Starting from the Château de Franchimont you head down towards Marché to cross the Hoëgne before starting a long upward course to Jevoumont. There you travel through meadows and woods as you head towards Banneux, passing Hodbomont and its château. After a passing through a dense forest, you reach – with some effort – the heights of Tancrémont and its château. This is followed by a long crossing through the woods and the crossing of the stream at the Ford des Trois Bois. After a long descent and taking the Vesdre at Goffontaine, a stiff climb awaits as you press on to the heights of Nessonvaux. The last stretch leading to Cornesse is then easy going.
