Icon description route Description

Between Boechout, Hove, Lint and Lier you cycle through a large open area: the Boshoek. The Boshoek is a patchwork of woods and farmland, crossed by the lachenebeeken and the Luitersheideloop. Get off your bike at the height of the Owl Forest in Hove. This ancient forest has been open to the public since 2017. Who knows, you might spot a leaping roe deer? Set your sights on the Moretus woods and the protected landscape the Melkkuip. At the Biesbesbos you can picnic, play or walk up to the Courtois Chapel. Follow the water along the Netedijk through the historic center of Lier. The Lachenebeek flows into the Nete. Along the bike lane are the Bos van Marpingen, Klimaatbos and Papendonkbos. From here you can walk across the meadow between the cows towards the Owl Forest. In the Klimaatbos along the Luitersheide, children (and adults!) can romp on the play hill. Take a break from your route and enjoy an artisan ice cream or stop by the milk machine for a refreshing glass of milk.
