In addition to this it is hoped that by limiting parking facilities on the High Fens, day-trippers might be encouraged to visit other areas in the East of Liège Province that are generally less popular with those wishing to enjoy a day out walking or cycling.
Those planning to go hiking on the High Fens are asked to stick to the official paths and to respect the rules that are in force to protect the environment and the fauna and flora in the High Fens Nature Park.
During the Christmas holidays the High Fens were overwhelmed by a flood of visitors. To prevent a repeat of this the Governor of Liège Province ordered the closure of the High Fens to traffic for two weekends at the beginning of this month. During the forthcoming weekend the police will be carrying regular checks to ensure that visitors only use the official car parks and don’t park their vehicles at the side of the road.
