Description

This route takes you partly through the woods, moors and farmland of the Maashorst Nature Area and partly through the agricultural landscape northeast of the Brabant town of Zeeland. Grazing animals are used for the management of the Maashorst Nature Reserve: Scottish Highlanders, Iceland ponies and Mouflons. There is a good chance that you will spot one of these animals.

Memories of the Second World War
Just before the hamlet of Gaal you cycle past the mill Nooit Gedacht, of which nothing more than the stone hull remains. In 1944, during the Second World War, this region was the setting for airborne landings. Just below Reek you pass a listening point of the Liberation Route, where you can hear an impressive story about the Second World War. Just before you cycle back into Zeeland, you pass windmill St.Victor, a wind corn mill.

The Heische Tip
The recreation park De Heische Tip forms the start and end point of the route. This campsite is located on a recreational lake with a beautiful sandy beach. The restaurant's terrace is located right on the water, a wonderful place to drink a cup of coffee. You can fill your belly here with tasty camping food such as fries with a snack, but you can also go there for more luxurious dinners. It's just what you're in the mood for.

Recreation area'De Kuilen\\\'
The recreation area'De Kuilen\\\' is located approximately two-thirds of the way. It consists of a number of pools that were created by sand excavations for the brick factory. You can enjoy water sports in this area and there is a large beach for swimming and sunbathing. The area is archaeologically very interesting. The so-called green sand that dates from the Miocene and Pliocene is extracted here. Green sand contains the mineral glauconite. All kinds of fossils can be found in this sand, such as bird bones, shark teeth and even the ear bones of dolphin species that must have lived here in the past.
