From the lively little town of St. Vith we begin by walking towards the wind turbines at Rodt, already visible at long range. When we get to the Tomberg in Rodt itself, a section of mixed woods with characteristic beech trees begins. Via paths some of which are quite small, we walk past places where the typical bluestone was painstakingly mined. In the village of Recht you can still find older houses in which these stones were used.
From Recht, a beautiful trail leads through the woods towards Stavelot and the Amel valley. At the Autobahn E42 we walk down into the extensive Amel valley. Shortly after the village of Pont, we leave the regular long-distance hiking trail GR56 and turn off towards Ligneuville, which lies on the 'Amel variant'. This very flat trail takes us straight to the 'trout farm capital', as Ligneuville is also fondly known.
