Heath Field Route
When you walk the Heideakkerroute from the Heezerweg in Mierlo, you are walking on a special part of the Strabrechtse Heide. This 4.5 kilometre route takes you through the forest, past endless bush and heath fields.
When you walk there, you will not believe that there are several very cosy villages nearby. You really feel like you're in a National Geographic nature documentary with each passing minute. Be sure to bring a bottle of water with you in the summer: it can be hot on the open heath and that will make you thirsty. The Heath Field Route route is a round, so you will automatically return to the starting place. But you can also extend the route; then you walk the Drifting Sand Route (Stuifzandroute).
