Geocache Description:

The beech hedge called Les Charmilles is the longest one of Belgium, with a length of 573 m. The green tunnel consists of 4700 beeches, 60 to 70% of them are older than hundred years. This tree hedge was cultivated in 1885 on behalf of J. R. Nys, a former entrepreneur.

Park your car at N 50° 28.102 E 005° 46.749.

Go to the two pillars that mark the beginning of Les Charmilles.

Before you start your walk through the green tunnel don’t forget to look to the right.
There is a memorial for a noble lady.
Note when she died: ab. Decembre cdef.

Now walk and enjoy the landscape.
At the end of the tunnel you will find a bench, there you can rest and calculate where to search for the cache.
