The Zuidlaardermeer is a natural lake. It was originally fed with groundwater from the Drenthe plateau. The area consists of the Zuidlaardermeer with its surrounding riparian lands and part of the polders north and northwest of the lake, in which also part of the Foxholster lake and the Drentse Diep are located. The open landscape around Zuidlaardermeer is determined by the Hondsrug in the west and the edge of the Veenkoloniën in the east. Towards the flank of the Hondsrug, the landscape is somewhat condensed by the development of swamp forest on the landscaped petholes and the wooded banks in the vicinity of farms. To the southeast of Noordlaren the banks of the lake are largely forested with alder. The east side of the lake is almost treeless. At the start of our era, the influence of the sea extended as far as north of where the Zuidlaardermeer now lies. The first bend cuts and embankments have probably already been carried out in the area before the year 1000. The sandy and high peat soils were put into use as construction and pasture land and the low peat bogs were used as the countries of the islands. These countries were flooded in the winter. Until the second half of the 19th century, Hunze Valley was still open to the sea via the Reitdiep. As a result, there was one, albeit slight, ebb and flow movement down to Zuidlaardermeer. This connection with the sea was broken between 1850 and 1900 by the closure of the Reitdiep. At the beginning of the 20th century, pieces of land were dyed in the Onnerpolder, and to a lesser extent in the Oostpolder.

One can only do this loop between April and October - in other months the ferry is not in operation and the walk stops about mid ways....
