Here and there you will discover a piece of heather.
This walking route in the Maasduinen National Park leads through the beautiful area of the Reinders lake that was created by sand excavations. In the sixties, the extraction of industrial sand for the concrete industry started at Bergerheide. These demolitions created the Leuker lake, Seurenheide day beach and Reinders lake. Nature plays the leading role around the 45-meter deep and 130-hectare Reinders lake.
