Signposts at the sunken crossroads in front of the railroad embankment, where Ernst Jünger fought the 20th March 1918 during the Great Offensive and saved the life of a British soldier. Both walks are marked by the FFRP (Fédération Française de la Randonnée Pédestre):

Sentier du Bois Gilles
The north-west part of the short walk of Gilles Wood follows approximately the route Ernst Jünger took the 20th March 1918.

Sentier des australiens
The walk of the Australians is a longer walk which covers the area of the Bullecourt battle in April-May 1917.
