Nature reserve Plateaux-Hageven.

This beautiful walk from Natuurmonumenten will take you through the cross-border nature reserve Plateaux-Hageven in Bergeijk. You walk through forests, heathland and along fens. You can see from the tracks along the way that there are many wild boars in this area, but the chance that you will see them is very small! The walk starts at the Natuurmonumenten parking lot on the N74. You first walk on a wide country road that then becomes a very beautiful hiking trail. You cross the Belgian border through heathland and fens. Here you have a small piece of paved road between the fields. Via a very beautiful suspension bridge over the Dommel you will return to the heath. When you come through a poplar forest on a dirt road you will get a border stone on the right a little later. This stone used to be moved several times in order to make one or the other country a bit bigger. To prevent this, a (border) tree was planted at that location, which could no longer be moved!


Very well marked.

Map & Poi's.

POI 1 - Border tree.

Inseparably linked: a boundary stone near a large oak. The stone clearly indicates the border, but can be moved by a smart or cunning person. Hence the oak. It could not be moved in a short time, so secretly steailing land was no longer possible! The fields that you will walk through in the meantime are flow meadows from the 19th century. You can read the story behind this on the panel next to the boundary stone.
