Ascent Trip Report

Official metal marker post (N50.75470 E6.02075) supposedly denoting NL highpoint but true HP appears to be 100m to NW (N50.75494 E6.01930, 326m) along path which according to map on board next to Bistro, follows the NL / Belgium border. Dreilandpunt (N50.75430 E6.02100) is a stone post marking the NL/D/BE border junction. Also a tall tower giving a view over the treetops. Very busy spot on a warm sunny Sunday. lunchtime. Main challenge is finding parking. We used roadside a little way down on Belgian side.

After Signal de Botrange. Then on to Reesberg the Wallonia state HP before returning to Brussels airport.
