I live in Dordrecht for 30 years now. This hike is a good choice and brings you to all the higlights.

A nice afternoon walk. Nothing spectacular but a good chance to see various birds and reach a great beach.

Dunes with low trees and scrub. Beautiful lakes and see views. Some wild horses and cattle.

Not a challenge, but a nice walk to see beautiful flowers, swans, sheep, ducks, cows, horses, goats, geese, and, if it is open, a great Japanese garden.

​This is NOT a trail. First part in Rotterdam is next to a noisy highway. Next part, along the river 'Schie' is on the wrong side of the river, with houses blocking the view. I live in Rotterdam and I sometimes run to Delft. You can actually better start this walk at the Erasmus Bridge, facing the city - take a left and follow the big river, the Nieuwe Maas, until you can go no further. You will pass the World Museum and a small harbour after that, just walk around it back to the river and keep going until you can go no further. (At the end is a nice park for a small detour.) You will have to take a right as a small canal branches off, so do so, cross the Parksluis and take a left. See the water on your left? Keep it there, and follow it! You will walk the Rochussenstraat and Aelbrechtskade. Still a city walk, but no highway! The road will turn into a bicycle path and a foot path, but just keep going, following the water. You're leaving the city now, walking past a prison. You will cross a foot bridge, justkeep going. Eventually, you find yourself on a small street with cute little houses to your right and the Delfthavense Schie still to your left. Keep going until you reach a T-section on a small, pretty iron bridge. You are now almost back on the original path, but after a prettier city walk. Instead of going right, though, go left (cross that little bridge, switching the river to your right) about 200 meters till you reach the road crossing another bridge. You need to get bacj to the river you were following, so cross it, and a bit further on you find a small road leading you right back to the river, which is now on your right. Follow that and you will end up in Delft on the original path. I don't know about the second half to The Hague, but I hope it was planned with more care than the first half.

The first and last section of the trail is along the windmills of Kinderdijk. Resulting in great views, but very busy with tourists. Once you leave the windmills behind it quiets down. The trail is for about 60% paved and 40% grass. Even though the trail follows the main water almost constantly the views are changing constantly. I hiked out and camped at the paalkampeerplaats, but you can also do it all in one day.

Great experience. The section of the trail close to Kinderdijk is quite busy with tourists, but once you leave the mills behind the hike is nice and relaxing. Great experience to camp, but it's also possible to hike it all at once. About half of the hike is on long grass.
