This walking route from NS station Steenwijk to NS station Meppel runs along and over the Havelterberg. The word mountain is a bit exaggerated, because it turns out to be a hill. You can spend the night in the nature friend's house Het Hunehuis, which is right next to the Havelterberg. You can also camp here. With a height of 18.8 m above sea level, the Havelterberg is the highest point in the Havelterzand. From this point, near the 2 hunebeds, it is a beautiful view over the heathland at the foot of the Havelterberg. Dolmens, burial mounds, airplane hangars, bomb craters can be seen here as memories of historical times. Messrs Voerman and Van Giffen are known for their finds and excavations in the first half of the last century. Thousands of flint tools from Reindeer Hunters, 10,000 years ago, were found by Voerman at the foot of the Havelterberg. The collection is donated to the Provincial Museum Drenthe. At the foot of the mountain was a Celtic field, fields from the Iron Age surrounded by a wall. This was leveled before the construction of the airport in the Second World War. Heathland, drifting sand, forests and farmlands are the decoration of this moraine, created by glacier movements in the penultimate ice age, the Saalian. The combination of lime-rich boulder clay, which is poorly permeable, and the fluted surface make it possible to find wet spots on this mountain. Due to these special circumstances, a number of rare and endangered plant species occur in this area. Variety and old forestages ensure a rich bird and animal life. All species of woodpeckers, golden-tailed wallow, nightjar and, for example, quail king are observed here. Wet bomb craters house crested newts, frogs and ring snakes. Although this is still very valuable, the changes in groundwater management and agricultural developments have led to impoverishment of nature in the last half century. Some plants have disappeared or are about to do this. The last grouse were seen at the foot of the Havelterberg in the early 1950s. Holtingerzand with the so-called ash are very valuable historical landscapes. The drifting sand is no longer alive. Wooded banks around the ash, with oak forest, have a rich flora. Among other things white sorrel, and spice. The rare seven-star has been able to maintain itself as a species from the tundra climate of the last Ice Age.
