Red deer in the Scheeken.
In the spring of 2017, Brabants Landschap brought back red deer in the fenced part of the Scheeken-Mortelen and the Scheeken on the east side of the A2 motorway, both areas connected by a natural bridge. If the red deer cannot be seen in the Scheeken-Mortelen nature reserve, on the way back you get a second chance. The hike also goes through the fenced section on the east side. Heerenbeek is an old country estate that consists of three-quarters of damp deciduous forest. In Heerenbeek one passes a monumental farmhouse from the first half of the 19th century and a country house with hanging towers that make it look like a castle. The 't Veldersbosch is a damp, old deciduous forest with pieces of mixed forest. This forest was created around 1750 and is the oldest of its kind in the Meierij of 's-Hertogenbosch. It is a starry forest, in which there are nine avenues that meet at a central point "De Negen Dreven", on the edge of the Velder estate is an imposing country house called Groot Velder.
60% of this walk is unpaved.
