The 'Folkloristic Hiking Trail’ in Beselare is a thematic trail highlighting a number of historical traditions, the cultural identity of the parish and some well-known and sometimes feared municipal residents over the centuries. It illustrates the exploitation and development of the uncultivated lands by the ‘Lords of Beselare', their economic activity, the revival after the First World War and the witch traditions. The hiking trail starts at the Market Square of Beselare, next to the Witches’ scale.

A map of the hiking trail can be found at the information panel at the starting point.. The trail is signposted with hexagonal signs and the information of specific sites is displayed on information panels, in four languages, along the trail.
The walking map can be purchased at the Tourist Office in Zonnebeke at a price of €1.50/map.
