Walking through the forest, you will be able to see different terrains, like agriculturaly developed fields, sandfields, 'heide', forest. There are also brooks and small waters. There are parts were sheep may roam, wild boars are sighted and in the early morning deer and foxes haven been spotted. I myself was walking there on a sunny day when I stepped on something rather thick and round whcih made a rattling sound when i got of. It was an adder, the only native snake of the Netherlands. So, keep your eyes also on the road before you.
If you want to do 'De Meinweg' differently, you can go horseback riding through the woods. You can make reservations with the manege De Venhof at Herkenbosch, VENHOF 2 6075NE HERKENBOSCH, phone 0475-531495.
