Nature Walk De Peel: Mussenbaan-Darkblue

Startlocatie: Moostdijk 15
6035 RB
De Peel

Walking/hiking routes

Length of route: 6 km. De Peel is as Dutch as it gets. Nevertheless, this area on the border of Noord-Brabant and Limburg is difficult to compare with other parts of our country.

Walking in the Peel

There is only one way to explore National Park de Groote Peel and that is with your hiking boots on. Although the area is still very swampy here and there, thanks to the many paths, the Peel is easily accessible. De Groote Peel is the smallest National Park in the Netherlands and is best known for its many birds and for the history of peat cutters. 

The Mussenbaanroute

The Mussenbaanroute takes you over old peel tracks, past a bird hide, a viewing tower and over boardwalks to the border of Brabant and Limburg. Here the Forestry Commission has purchased farmland that is now managed as meadow bird areas. Among others, the black-tailed godwit breeds here and in winter many geese can be found.
