The Maasduinen National Park is best explored on foot. Put on your sturdy shoes for a beautiful and varied walk through two parts of this national park.

Estate Bleijenbeek
You walk through a coniferous forest that was created at the end of the nineteenth century. Now and then the forests are interrupted by meadows and fields. In the middle of the area you come through the Duvelskuul, a heathland area. Here are some fens that arose in extinct basins of the river dune. What a beautiful place!

Watchtower
At Boscafé Het Rimpelt you can recharge your batteries with a meal before you start the second loop of your route. You walk past the Nooit Gedacht, a flour mill from 1958. Then you can fully enjoy nature again in the Broedersbos. You walk over rolling river dunes between coniferous and deciduous trees and along the tranquil Esven. There is a twelve meter high watchtower on the heath: what a panorama!
