    Hiking in Vresselsbos

    by Veghel Updated Sep 25, 2006

    Vresselsbos is a forest to the southeast of Sint-Oedenrode (close to the small village of Nijnsel). People have been living in this area for a long time. Remains of an old farm were dated back to 1410 before Christ, the bronze era.
    In the heart of Vresselsbos, there are two groups of lakes: Moerkuilen and Hazenputten. Moerkuilen thank their existance to peat cutting. Hazenputten is a natural mere. About 100 years ago, there were no trees in this area. Instead, the entire area was taken by drifting sand and meadow. In dry times, much sand was blown away in some places. In rainy times, these places became meres.

    Equipment: There are several hikes in this area. The paths are clearly marked and well maintaned. The longest trail is circular and about 10 km long. After rainfalls, hiking boots are recommended. In dry periods, any boots will do as long as they are comfortable for hiking.
