Hiking : Lieteberg

With the exception of the ‘Vierlandsherenpunt’, all hiking routes starting at the ‘Lieteberg’ fall outside the National Park. This does not mean they are not very charming natural areas on themselves. They are situated on the soft slanting southern hillside of the ‘Hoge Kempen’. Most heather has given way to pine forests, but you can still find some very nice relics of heather at the ‘Bezoensberg’. And the ‘Hesselberg’ contains the second biggest plantation of juniper. More to the south, the regions ‘Hoefaert’, ‘Roelen’ and ‘Gellik’ have a lot to offer. In ‘Hoefaert’ and ‘Roelen’ you will find some very diversified woodlands, whilst ‘Gellik’ is situated near the border with ‘Haspengouw’, which explains the amount of orchards around the villages.

There are 8 well-marked hiking routes with the following starting points:

  • Gateway ‘Lieteberg’, ‘Blookbergstraat, B-3690 Zutendaal’
