Getting There

On the E42 highway Verviers-Malmedy, take exit 10 'Hockai'. When you reach Hockai follow the road in the direction of Xhouffraix. When you reach the forest and after some sharp curves, you arrive at the Fraineu 'fagne' where you see an info-sign and some parking space. From there you can hike to the Fraineu - fagne (northwards) or cross the road and follow the Tros Marets river downstream (southwards).
