These maps are a combination of groundwork, our partnerships and local commune input. There are references to which detailed IGN & NGI maps can be used as a companion when planning your own journey. The Western Front Way app is currently in development which will accurately lead all walkers and cyclists the length of the routes. 

Belgium is marked and open for you and in France, the marking is occurring in stages. Our plaques are up on town-halls, important sites and tourist offices so do call in and ask them for advice and ideas.

The Western Front Way is a shared endeavour with our official partners in France and Belgium but having a fully marked path will evolve over time. If you would like more information do drop us a line at
