Flood plains of the Maas.

After leaving the floodplains, the tour continues through St. Agatha with the Crosier Monastery of St. Agatha as a landmark. This monastery was founded around 1371 by the Crosiers. The monastery is the oldest inhabited monastery in the Netherlands. The hike then continues via quiet country roads to the nature reserve De Zevenhutten. There were once seven poor farmhouses in this area. They started a special cultivation, heather was converted into oak coppice. This oak coppice met the need for wood to burn the stove and make tools. Due to its cultural history, the oak coppice is preserved, but most of the forest is allowed to 'continue' growing. Because part of the hike goes through meadows in the floodplains, waterproof shoes are definitely recommended.
