The green route is a conditienal track whit nice hills. The red track is a spice of the Topcompetition route in Groesbeek. It's a very technical track whit very diffecult hills.

Summary:
The routes are mostly single-track. Enjoy the view at the "Mookerheide" and the "Jachtslot Mookerheide"

Recommended Route:
Start the green route near McDonalds on the Rijksweg to warm up a bit. After you have completed the long downhill path, change to the red route for a long steep climb.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Try the paths around pancakehouse "De Duivelsberg" in Berg en Dal

Summary:
We allways start from the parking place at Plasmolen. If you do this, you need to add around 10 km to the route, which starts with some long climbs. For a beginner this can be very demanding. The route leads you through the forrest on mainly fire roads with some single track but not much. You cross a few footpaths and some main roads, so you have to be carefull for walkers. We missed one marker a few times, we don't even know if it's really there. The rest of the route is very well marked. The route is not very technical but more of a general cross country ride with some nice scenery and places to sit down and have some lunch. Most of the time the route is dry and even after a rainy week there is little mud. There is some sandy areas but not much, some of the route involves riding on tarmac. Overall, a very nice route for a sunday afternoon. Challenging for a beginner, a nice runaround for everybody else. At the Plasmolen startingpoint there is a nice terrace to sit and relax after your ride with something to eat and drink. Routemaps are available at the hotel upon crossing the main road.

Recommended Route:
We have only ridden the red route so we don't know the green one yet.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
we haven't tried any other route in the area.

Summary:
The green route is not very technical. Very fast though. IMHO a great way to improve your shape. The red route is a bit more difficult, but even a beginner could ride this route (with care). Not nearly as difficult as my very secret Beekbergen single track....
All the tracks are well laid-out and taken care of though!

Recommended Route:
Park at Tivoli in Berg en Dal, have a quick road warm-up and take the steep clim into the green route...

Summary:
These are great routes, both for beginners and intermediate bikers. The longest one is for the faster biker, because it has only 1 or 2 nice climbs. The other has nice climbs and downhills and the scenery is great.

Recommended Route:
Park at the parkingplace at the north of the trails (it's a great startingpoint)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Amerongse Berg (Amerongen/Veenendaal)
