The elevation data contains minor measurement errors. As a result, possibly more height differences can be seen in the elevation graph than in reality.

The elevation graph does not show the elevations of the start and end points and links to the route!

Shortest distance from Brussel to the GR12: 0,30 km

Length of the displayed part of the GR12: 38,1 km

Shortest distance from GR12 to Kasteelbrakel: 0,25 km

Total distance Brussel - Kasteelbrakel approximately 38,6 km

Total ascent 915 m

Total Descent 879 m

The elevation data contains minor measurement errors which can cause the total ascent and the total decent to be too high.

The altitude differences on the routes from the starting point to the hiking route and from the walking route to the endpoint are not included in the totals!

Horizontal speed km/h

Ascent speed m/h

Descent speed m/h

The speeds to be used for the calculation can be adjusted.

The calculation is an approximation. The actual duration varies per person and also depends on the terrain and the weather conditions.

The formula used to calculate the walking time: Walkingtime = distance / horizontalspeed + ( totalascent / ascentspeed + totaldescent / descentspeed)/2

The exact locations of 'Towns' are based on the locations Google Maps gives. Usually this is somewhere in the center of the town.

**The distances in the table and on the map are an approximation!!** This is because the actual routes from the GR12 to the POI are not included.

The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the GR12 is the shortest distance to the GR12 in a direct line.

The distances between two POIs (point 1 and point 2) are calculated as follows

Total distance ** = ** Distance point 1 to nearest point on the GR12 ** + ** Distance point 2 to nearest point on the GR12 ** + ** Distance between the two nearest points on the GR12

If points 1 and 2 are close to the GR12, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.

If one of the two points is situated further from GR12, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.

It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the GR12 and from the GR12 to the end of a stage! This may e.g. by zooming in on the map and checking for a path or road from the starting point to the GR12 and from the GR12 to the end point.

** The track of the GR12 is from different sources and may include errors. Also, the recorded POIs may include errors! It is recommended to check the track and points before walking the path! **
