Get active out in nature at reservoir Lake Gileppe. Cycle, walk, mountain bike, or climb across a rope bridge. No, really. Are you brave enough to face the Accropark?

Get your friends or family together for an active day out near Jalhay. This lake and reservoir is packed full of adventure! Take your pick of the walking and cycling trails or head over to Accropark for 30 acrobatic things to do blended into the natural landscape.


Explore the treetops! Get your gloves on and get ready for an adventure out in nature above the lake. Tackle your fears and cross the rope bridge with gorgeous views of the lake and valley all around you. There’s 30 activities along the way, but we think we can all agree that the rope bridge is one Instagram photo you need to get on your visit to Lake Gileppe.

Includes a climbing wall, free play area for kids, and a choice of 3 trails for beginners to adventurous types.

Biking Route

Saddle up for a 16km bike route around the lake, scenic and quiet. Good for beginner cyclists and walkers too. This easy going route that gives you time to enjoy the natural views. It’s all signposted and about 80% car free. At quieter times you’re not going to see a car at all. For escaping the city, this is your best bet. Wanna keep going? There’s another 26km track for mountain biking only.

Walk Away

There’s tons of space for walking around Lake Gileppe, but the lake is also part of 3 walking and hiking trails. Choose from an easy, medium or hard walk to customise your walking path. From 3km to 13.6km, hikers have lots to choose from here. The 3km hard walk might be the shortest, but it’s got the roughest terrain! Walk your way through nature for an educational journey and great views of the lake.
