Poppel is a nice town that is easy to explore on foot. In the outlying area you walk through a stream valley and through Molenheide, a forest on the border between Belgium and the Netherlands.
Walking between the meadows and fields you get into your rhythm. You walk for a while through the stream valley of the Aa, you regularly get shelter from the trees. Occasionally you see a beautiful characteristic farm.
After a while you walk into Molenheide, a forest area where you sometimes have views of farmland. At node 96 you come close to the border along the Rovertkapel from 1735. From 1643 to 1672 there was a border church for the Catholics from Hilvarenbeek here. You walk further into the forest. How quiet it is here! It will not surprise you that many smugglers used to be active here. Back in Poppel you can still see some beautiful monumental buildings.
