Height Profile


Just outside Helmond you walk a figure of eight around the hamlet of Rijpelberg. The first loop leads you through the Bakelse Bos. Then you walk around the wooded recreation area Berkendonk.

The oldest forest plot in the Bakelse Bos dates from 1915. The forest is located on former shifting sand, so that you mainly walk between Scots pines and other coniferous woods. You will also pass some sand dunes. Occasionally you hear the drumming of a woodpecker, seeing him is another story. You walk along the edge of the forest through the leafy outskirts of Helmond. Halfway through you can take a break at the Palingpaviljoen Rijpelaal.

When you walk into Berkendonk, you first have a wide view on the left over vast meadows. As soon as you come out of the first forest plot, you have a beautiful view over a pond and the large pond with reed borders. Further on you walk further along the lake, on the right is the stream Oude Aa. It is wonderfully quiet to walk on the footpath here. Time for a terrace at Palingpaviljoen Rijpelaal.
