The 'Zandvoorde Hiking Trail' brings the story of Zandvoorde during the First World War. The village occupied an important strategic position due to its higher location on the Central Ridge of the West-Flanders. The unique view over the surroundings, combined with a firm German defense line, brought about that Zandvoorde could only be liberated during the Offensive in 1918.

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 along the trail the information is displayed on multilingual information panels.
The hiking trail map with the 3 Legacy or Passchendaele walking trails (Tyne Cot, Polygon Wood and Geluveld) can be purchased at the Tourist Office or via at a price of € 1.50/map.
