Length: 3 mi • Est. 1 h 23 m
This nature trail runs around De Stompert Nature Reserve, a nature reserve on military training grounds and at the former Soesterberg airport. The area has been open to the public since 1994. De Stompert is named after the high peak (51 meters) in this area. This "mountain" was called the Soesterberg. The area is characterized by a diversity of trees and forests with many height differences, in particular the presence of hawthorn forests, the so-called oak-throated forests. These primeval forests were created because people regularly peeled the trees just above the ground without the roots. The jagged trees are special to see. Many breeding birds live in the area.Show more
