The Bergerbos is located in the northern part of the Maasduinen National Park. You go along the edge of forest and open area to the heathland. Scottish Highlanders and Dutch land goats are used here to graze the heath. Special are the large amounts of gray serpentine that grow here. This dark green leaf moss is better known as tank moss, it came to the Netherlands between the caterpillars of the allied tanks that liberated the south of the Netherlands in 1944. On a river dune you get a beautiful view of the fens on the Quin. You continue walking through a coniferous and deciduous forest in the direction of the Afferdense Duinen. From the twelve meter high watchtower you have a beautiful view over the entire region. From the tower you walk through heathland to beautiful Zevenbooms fen.
