To put this place in perspective, it's just a huge park, there is lots of single and a few small technical hills, problem is none of the single track lasts for more 1 1/2 km's a goood thing is to just go in and get lost, there are all these short little trails everywhere, it's a big singletrack maze, fun ride but no continuity

Customer Service

Get on the AFNorth Inn service road and take the first right after the speed bump, take the first left onto some single track and follow it till it comes out above the sand dune things.

Similar Products Used: Nature Spark just outside the back Gate of GK, and another park between Schinveld and the Naturespark by GK, also a big one down by Aachen.

It's one of the best trails the Netherlands can offer. The trail is rather diverse and well maintained. No long climbs though (as you can expect from a terribly flat country like the Netherlands) but lots of short ones.

Customer Service

I haven't been there for a wile. They are both great, but I prefer the long one.

Similar Products Used: This is the "hilly" part of the Netherlands. Valkenburg and Maastricht are good places if you are looking for more trails in the area. There are several small villages that offer signposted trails. Landscapes are usually very nice here.

Easy to get off the MTB and directed onto a horse trail, also the signs marking the trail are easy to lose, so watch carefully! 1st time riders...find someone who knows these trails, it'll make it much easier till you learn the route.

Customer Service

Still trying to find the whole route!

Similar Products Used: Still looking for the right one close to AFCENT!

The trails are exciting and also very picturesque - but watch out! The terrain changes rapidly, one minute you can be dodging trees to surfing in sand to getting sticky in the mud. Plenty of hills even though Holland does not have many, the "inclines" are pretty long and give your muscles a good pounding. I'm a new comer to this sport but this site is well worth a crack!!

Customer Service

Brunssum has 3 routes which you can join together very easily.

ALL 3 ROUTES ARE SUPERB, BUT AUTUMN TIME IS BETTER THAN SUMMER IF YOU LOVE THE MUD THEN THE AMAZING CONTRAST OF SURFACES AND CONDITIOND EAT YOU UP.

Customer Service

DO THEM ALL!

Similar Products Used: A ROUTE HAS BEEN ALTERED RECENTLY. BEHIND THE AFNORTH SPORTS FIELDS A MAKESHIFT ROAD HAS BEEN PRODUCED IN THE WOODS AND HAS TAKEN OVER SOME OF THE EXCELLENT TERRAIN, AFTER THIS YOU CONTINUE ALONG THE ORIGINAL ROUTE ALONG A CLIFF TYPE EDGE. YOU CAN CONTINUE THE ORIGINAL EXIT FROM THE DROPS BUT THEY ARE NOW NOT MAINTAINED SO BE CAREFULL!! THE NEW EXIT HERE IS WIMPISH AND VERY EASY.

Schooter's park is pretty wet and muddy year round, a few short techincal climbs but nothing to terribly hard. AFNorth portion very short but a couple nice switch back areas that can test you along with a nice little shoot at the end. Brunssumheide loops are great for the area. Easy access to the trail by the International Inn by the round about. Definately worth looking into. I think they are pretty well marked but you can get off trail pretty easy also. Good trail for beginners and intermediate riders.

Customer Service

Hit Schoother's park, AFNorth slag heap (Sports fields), then cross over to the heide. Lots of kilometers and lots of different terrain.

Similar Products Used: I believe it's called Schimler, just past Schinnen exit coming from Herleen. Real small loop but a decent climb followed by a nice downhill. Loop only about 2-3 K long though.
