Saturday morning after breakfast we depart towards Montferland. Despite the file we arrive at 10 am at the parking lot along the N815, the road Zeddam.
The forecast is reasonable today. In the morning it will be cloudy, but later in the afternoon the sun will shine. We stand in the parking lot and the sun comes occasionally through the clouds, so we have high hopes for a nice Saturday walk.

From the parking lot we walk into the woods and turn right directly. We walk toward the viewpoint Kale Jacob. At the foot of the Hettenheuvel hill we turn left towards Kale Jacob. At the top of Kale Jacob for a while we enjoy the beautiful view. Then we walk on the other side of Kale Jacob back down. At the end we turn left again and at the next intersection we turn left again and walk up. It is autumn, so the Bergherbos is in full autumn colours. This makes the walk very nice.

We walk along a nice route through the forest toward the parking the Peeske. Just before the parking lot we cross the road and walk through the Bergherbos forest near Montferland in the direction of ‘s Heerenberg. Just before ‘s Heerenberg we turn towards the Galgenberg and we walk towards the viewing point. The view is a bit disappointing and lacking a bench, so we walk on towards Hotel Montferland. We walk on an asphalt road along the moraine below the hotel.
We walk towards the N335 and crossing it. We walk along the forest and have a nice view of Zeddam. Through the Montferland forest we walk through over nice forest trails back to the car. After a nice walk we are back in the parking lot.

All in all it was a nice varied walk in the Bergherbos. The beautiful fall colours made the hike in Montferland more enjoyable.

Length: 19.4 km
