The Boelarebos climb runs, as the name suggests, through the Boelarebos. It is a quiet gradual climb without really steep parts. Thanks to the bars at the top and bottom of the forest entrance, you will not encounter much traffic. After all, cars can't get through. The disadvantage of this is the road condition, which is rather bad, partly due to the tree roots that push up the road here and there.
Still, this climb is a nice alternative for those who prefer to ignore the Muur in Geraardsbergen. Turn right at the bottom of Geraardsbergen and continue straight ahead parallel to the imaginary Dender. Do not take the main road in the direction of Edingen but continue right/right through the Gaverstraat. Just past the railway, turn right into a small lane. It immediately goes uphill and a little later you are in the forest.
