Access

By public transport you take bus 45 from Tilburg to Turnhout. Get off at the Goirle - Nieuwkerksedijk stop. The Regte Heide is located southwest of Goirle. From the bowl of Riel follow the signs "Regte Heide". The easiest way to reach the heath is through the entrance on the Rielse Dijk. Another option is via the Tweede Dijk, accessible from the Goirle industrial estate.

It's best to explore the area by bike or just by walking, since you can't go there with the car. You can park the car nearby and then walk to it. It's rather easy to find.

You can also park at the carpark that is marked on the map and walk from there (2 km)
