De Maasduinen National Park consists of numerous small nature reserves, all of which are worth exploring. You will find two of these sub-areas on either side of Wellerlooi: the Wellsche Heide and Landgoed de Hamert.

Wellsche Heide
The Maasduinen were formed in the last ice age, by sand and clay, deposited by the Rhine and Maas. The river sand rose up: hence the shifting dunes of today. Although the dunes are hidden from view by forests, such as the deciduous forests on the Wellsche Heide where your walking route first takes you. You can also see some tufts of heather. In the Rode Hoek, northwest of Wellerlooi, you can enjoy wonderfully sweet-scented coniferous trees.

The Hammer
Your walking route leads you through Wellerlooi, where you can settle down for a bite to eat at your start and end point, Eetcafé Het Centrum. This is followed by the second part of the route: Landgoed de Hamert. This nature reserve is also part of the Maasduinen. You walk along fens, through heaths and forests. You may see Galloway cattle, sheep or goats trimming the moors. A beautifully varied area!
