    The name of the Mookerheide reveals that this trail run runs through a heather area. But that's certainly not all. The snow-white hunting lodge from 1904 on the Mookerheide estate is also on the route. In the past there was a rose garden and beautiful pond at the front.
    In addition, the castle had an ice house. The ice from the winter was stored in it, so that you had a refrigerator in the summer. Since 1985 the castle, the gardens and the surrounding nature reserve have been in the hands of Natuurmonumenten.
    If you want you can walk an extra circle around the castle to have a good look. A walk is also allowed here!Due to the height differences during the run, you have a beautiful view in various places. One of them is at the southernmost point of your run. From here you can see the Mookerheide and you can see the hunting lodge in the distance.In any case, you can see far from the Mookerschans. Here is a lookout tower of twelve meters high from which you can see the typical double church towers of Cuijk.And a little further is the Heumense Schans. Like the Mookerschans, this was a security post in the seventeenth century. Not surprising, because from this point you can clearly see whether the enemy is coming. The end point is also in sight from here. Another one and a half kilometers and your trail run of almost eight kilometers is already over. Don't forget to stretch well afterwards.
