Wandelgebied Mechelse Heide

Hiking : Mechelse Heide

None of the Gateways to the National Park are so adapted to hiking as the ‘Mechelse Heide’. The north side of the road between ‘As’ and ‘Maasmechelen’ (‘J. Smeetslaan’) will take you through a nice forest area, while the south side mainly consists of heather and will take you to some of the highest points of the ‘Hoge Kempen’. You can even see as far as Germany. Due to the difference in height, some of the routes are considered moderate to heavy walking. But it is well worth the effort, since these hikes will take you to some of the most beautiful patches of heather in the region (‘Mechelse Heide’ or ‘Kikbeekbron’). All the hiking routes fall within the boundaries of the National Park
