IVN Laarbeek is holding a public walk leading along and through the stream valley of the Schevelingse loop and that of the Goorloop. This walk starts from the Croyse Hoeve in Aarle-Rixtel and takes about two hours. Guides are Ria Nooijen and Henk van Beek.

These brook valleys were carved by large meltwater streams in the last and penultimate ice age. They are flanked by high cover sand ridges. Meandering and high water levels caused latitudinal erosion. This caused sharp steep edges, which are still visible in the landscape. There are still flints in the soil of the old farmland near Antoniushoeve, where organically grown vegetables are sold. They used to be used as scrapers or knives. Manure from the potting stables was spread on the iron-rich sediments of the stream valleys and mixed with heather sods. This created a nutritious soil. From these high-lying fields you descend to the low-lying land along the Schevelingse Loop. First you pass through a forest of old willows and oaks, then you reach a large trial field of cattails. There, research is being done by the water board and the agricultural school on biodiversity. Here and there the banks have been flattened as watering places for animals and pools have been created. This area is a jewel in the landscape, where many aquatic animals occur and where the kingfisher feels at home.
Sturdy waterproof shoes or boots are usually not a luxury. A pleasant walk!
