De Groene 62 isone of the best known green axes of the region. Until 1976 a train connected Torhout to Ostend here. Today it is a cyclists' paradise and the ideal connection between the Hinterland and the coast. During your 22 km trip you can stop at the Aertrycke and Wijnendale castles or the Statieput, a peaceful pond uses as a leisure park. The Groene 62 runs from Stene (Ostend) to Torhout.
