Entry Description

This new cycle path takes you straight through the Hoge Kempen National Park. Vast pine forests alternate with endless heathland landscapes. You get all this presented on a tray on the new connection between cycle nodes 550 and 551. An exceptional connection, because you cycle across the Mechelse Heide, with 700 hectares one of the largest heathland areas in Flanders. A unique experience on this route is undoubtedly the almost 300 meter long wooden bicycle bridge, a beacon in the landscape. On top of the bridge you get a panoramic view over the natural environment.
