The Venray blue route is 8 kilometres long and contains about 40% singletracks. The route leads through the forest area Ballonzuilbossen between Merselo and Overloon. This forest area is named after the balloon pillar that was placed there in 1896. There is also a fish pond in the woods.
The route starts at the memorial in the Balloon Column Woods in Venray. The route is marked with wooden posts with in the green and blue the international MTB sign (triangle with 2 circles underneath).
