Description

This walking route starts at the Vresselse Hut, a nature gate where you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee. From here you can walk straight into the Vressels Bos, a hidden gem of fragrant Scots pine, oak and beech. This 250-hectare forest was planted in the 1920s on a drifting sand ridge. In the middle of the forest you walk along the Hazenputten. This old fen is a lovely spot for a picnic. Further on you walk along the Moerkuilen, a wonderfully quiet peat lake that was created by peat extraction. De Moerkuilen is surrounded by a forest, so make sure you have waterproof shoes! A little later you walk through the Dommeldal: an old small-scale landscape of meadows, fields, hedges and beautiful regional farms. Here you imagine yourself back in the old Brabant.
