Bivakzone: Het Spoor Meerdaalwoud


Bivakzone Het Spoor is van Agentschap Natuur & Bos en werd gerealiseerd ism Boshuis Het Spoor.

! Opgelet, er is geen watervoorziening in de onmiddellijke omgeving!


This officially recognized bivouac area by the Flemish Agency for Nature and Forests (ANB) can be found on the edge of one of the biggest forest in Flanders, the Meerdaalwoud. It’s located next to a former but still-inhabited forester’s lodge. The border with Wallonia is only a couple of meters away. Accessible all year round. No reservation or registration necessary. Max 10 people or 3 small trekking tents allowed. You can stay up to 48 hrs (2 nights). Free stay. A bivouac area should not be confused with a small camping, rules are different, comfort facilities limited or non-existent and you are held personally responsible to keep the area spotlessly clean and quiet during your short stay. Strictly forbidden for any motorized vehicle, access only on foot or by bike. Make sure you bring all necessary drinking and washing water from elsewhere, it’s not available on site. Toilet. Small campfire allowed under normal weather conditions (no dry period or strong winds) but only at the specifically designated place, not elsewhere. Lots of waymarked walking and cycle trails in the area. Enjoy your short stay. Leave no trace, just your footsteps.
