Description

You can cycle endlessly in the woods in this area. Landgoed De Utrecht and estate Wellenseind count about 2500 hectares of forest. In the Reuseldal and the areas around the fens you will find blue-belled gentian, marsh dewclaw, white-billed rush and brimstone. But there is more than just natural beauty. An old fire tower with a forester's house from 1905 is one of the hidden gems of the woods.

Inn"In den Bockenreyder\\\"
After about 12 kilometers you can take a break at Herberg"In den Bockenreyder\\\". This inn breathes the atmosphere of the time when the goat riders went on raids. A cozy fire is crackling in the inn, but you can also enjoy a nice drink or snack on the terrace. The inn is beautifully situated in the middle of the woods and near the fens.

The Regional Forest
Near Ravels is the Gewestbos, which is known for its many fens. From 1906 the afforestation of the heath was started and this forest is the result. You will now find a variety of deciduous and coniferous trees. The Kesseven, which lies in the southern part of the forest, is the largest fen with an area of approximately 3 hectares. The fen is rather shallow and during prolonged drought it sometimes dries up.
