    The Pieterpad follows the dike of the Niers from Gennep. Then it continues in a southerly direction through former heaths and drifting dunes, such as the Gennepse Heide. This former NATO site has now been "returned" to nature. This entire area is intended for recreation with a large campsite and a bungalow park. After the crossing of the A72 motorway to Germany, a fascinating landscape follows, full of variety with the special nature reserve Het Quin, beautiful heathland. At Afferden you cross the Maas and you are in a distant corner of the province of Noord-Brabant. The landscape of the Maasheggen is unique. The hedges, also wicker hedges, were planted before the use of barbed wire at the end of the 19th century. Now the area up to Vierlingsbeek is a precious landscape monument. Especially in spring, when hawthorn blooms, meadows full of flowers and birds can be heard everywhere, you will have lasting memories here.
