Early visitors could enjoy a beautiful, misty morning in the wood. The purple blue flower carpet is getting bigger and more intense by the day. Low beeches are getting their translucent green leaves. Please stay on the paths at all times.
This weekend, the Nijvelsesteenweg will exceptionally be open in one-way direction: from Halle in the direction of Vlasmarktdreef. Parking 2 Forest Museum, Parking 3 and Parking 8 Achtdreven in these can be reached. In the area between Parking 2 (Forest museum) and the bridge over the RO there can only be parked on one side of the road (direction exit Nijvelsesteenweg).
It is recommended to use Parking 1 Hogebermweg or Houtveld, as Parking 2, 3, 8 will quickly get full in these busy weekends. The wood can easily be reached via the wildlife tunnel (see map). There are toilets on parking 1 and at the hunting lodge (‘pavilion’ on the hiking map).
