The Grote Netewoud.
The walk starts at the Grote Netewoud visitor center of Natuurpunt, a green and historic site next to a 17th-century water mill where the Grote Nete literally flows through the building. You first go through the Vloyen nature reserve to cross the Grote Nete via a tree bridge. You now follow the banks of the Grote Nete in the direction of the Volsbergenbossen. From there it goes in the direction of the Verloren Schaap nature reserve and the Belse Heide. The large drifting dunes on the heath stand out immediately. Torfven also provides nice pictures. You return to the starting point via the Bels Broek and the Grote Nete.
Good marking via nodes of the walking network Kempense Landduinen.
Walking shoes recommended.
