Scenically, this route is the most beautiful in the Deurne region.

(17.8 km)

Starting point: from your location


The route passes through the Liesselse bossen woodland area, a characteristic Brabant wood. A special section can be found at the Oude Aa, which winds through the woodland, with the riparian vegetation offering up plenty of variety. Follow the loop a few hundred metres upstream, along the Berktsedijk, and you will notice how the terrain begins to rise. 100 metres away, two weirs have been placed in the stream, resulting in a difference in elevation of more than two metres. You will be able to see the Peel boundary fault clearly here. This wood is also home to the Galgenberg, a clearing that was once use to hang convicts from a gallows as a deterrent. The route encompasses many winding and technical sections, and ample use has been made of the differences in elevation that the area has to offer.
