Inspired by a text that we read about Oisterwijk boasting 80 fens, this track takes you to 22 of these fens. It also includes a part of the amazing natural reserve of Kampina with its peaceful and extensive waters like Huisvennen, Zandbergse vennen and Kogelvangersven, some of the more familiar fens in that area.
The smaller waters though, like Kromven and Brandven, (of which there are two by that name) are on the other hand just as fantastic and draw fewer people. In fact, even on a wonderfully sunny Sunday we were often the only ones enjoying the many views on the fens.
All in all, much recommendable if you like a more extended walk along the fens than the ones signposted by Natuurmonumenten or those starting from the visitors centre.
As for catering along this trail: there is Boshuis Venkraai and towards the end of the hike, the visitors centre (not waypointed here).
