Joekelbos bicycling routes

JOEKEL-what? The Joekelbos, with its 12 hectares, is the largest adventure play forest in the country. The forest is located between junctions 526 and 527 in the middle of the Duinengordel. Follow the safe cycling routes through shady forests and past beautiful fens. Climbing, tasting blueberries, baking mud pies, and maybe spotting a deer with a bit of luck? It’s all possible. Parents take note: dirty clothes are allowed! A bicycle shed, two shelters, and a forest toilet provide additional comfort. A little hungry on the way? Order a tasty picnic basket with Oudsberg specialities from Tievishoeve or visit De 2 Spanten and enjoy a hot waffle, pancake, toastie, or delicious ice cream. Fun for the whole family!
