The Venray green route is 5 kilometres long and contains about 30% to 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 fishpond in the woods.
The route starts at the memorial in the Balloon Column Forest in Venray. The route is marked with wooden poles with in the green and blue the international MTB sign (triangle with 2 circles underneath).
