Part of the route may be closed in the summer during the gardening event "Bloem en Tuin". When that is the case, you can easily skip the closed area.

Description

Markings: Red MTB signs

The trail is marked with red MTB signs and leads to a former waste-dump that is now covered by grass, a golf course, and a MTB trail. The top of the hill is the highest point in the province of Noord Brabant. There is a nice view of the (flat) surroundings.

When riding on the track close to the highway, the markings are poor. About halfway through, the road bends away from the highway. At that point, there is a small trail into the woods close to the highway. Follow that (small) path, which bends back to the road just before the tunnel. Here, you cross the road and enter the woods on the other side (don't go through the tunnel).

After reaching the highest point, "Het dak van Brabant," ride down from the hill and be careful on the last part of the descent (after crossing the road). You may meet riders coming from the opposite direction. Look far ahead and adapt your speed if necessary.

Twice a year, the local tour club organizes an MTB tour in this area. See ntfu.nl for the exact dates.
At the north side, near the highway, the Connection Trail Nuenen can bring you to the Papenvoortse Heide Trail.

Dak van Brabant. On top of the hill, highest point of the province Brabant. You see the track up (left) and down (right). On the skyline, you see the television tower of Mierlo.
