September 1, 2020
The Brunssummerheide is the largest heathland area in Limburg. The area consists of pine forest, sand dunes and meadow, interspersed with frog pools. Because of the variety you can make a fun and yet not too long trail run here.From the parking lot you first walk to the highest point of the Brunssummerheide. Don't worry, the starting point is also quite high, so you don't start with a tough climb! The advantage is that you can properly absorb the environment from here.You continue towards the Roode Beek, which runs through both the Netherlands and Germany. You cross the brook via a wooden platform path, be careful not to slip. The stream is logically at the lowest point of the run, so from here the path slowly starts to rise again. On to the next viewpoint, where you are almost halfway through your trail run.When you turn to the right a bit further on, you walk completely sheltered through a birch forest. A narrow path leads you through the trees.Can't get enough of this beautiful area? Good, because there will be another viewpoint. There is a bench here, so if you want to rest, this is the perfect place. If not, it is only a mile to Restaurant Schrieversheide. Here you end your trail run with a drink on the terrace.
