I loved the trail. Lot's of great views, with a lot of unpaved trails. I started at the campground In de Polder, but parking is also available in Lage Zwaluwe or at Gat van Ham.

Great trail for a relaxed trail run. Easy to find trail, venture off for a bit of a challenge and find way back on route. Some sandy spots, but over all good hills and good fun.

Not bad for a dutch trail. Being from the Netherlands, I find it too flat but mostly too organised here, in general. 5-10% of this trail contains straight pieces of trail of about 300m in length, so that it's no surprise what you will see. All in all, there are spots in the center of the trail where it's pretty quiet (you can only hear the birds) and where you don't hear the car traffic (you'll hear and see cars in the easternmost part). Follow the dark yellow/light green trail stripes on the signs, these are for this specific trail (indicated as 12 km length on the various points where you can commemce the trail ).

Nice and easy walk through the forests of Lage Vuursche, passing some 3000-year-old barrows along the way. You hit the little village of Lage Vuursche at the half-way point (good stop for a drink or bite) and end up close to a nice cafe. We combined it with camping closeby at "paalkampeerplaats" Kaapweg, a free little camping site in the woods (no facilities at all, meaning that only nature-enthusiasts use it).

It's a nice ride for a bike tour, which shows you a typical Dutch landscape with cows and sheep, vast grass lands, skies and clouds, and lots of water. It's also possible to do this route by rollerblading, but it's less convenient as a walking trail.

Some sections of the trail are along busy roads, so be aware when taking kids. Most of the trail is off road.

In the 'Bloeidaal' nature reserve we have left the route for a while and have gone straight through the area instead of largely along it. The paths meet again just before the Koedijkerweg. Many herons seen on this first spring day of the year!

One of the nicest routes I have walked. It goes partly through meadows, forests, drifting dunes, fields and heath. The path is indicated by the green clog path logo

The route starts (walked counter-clockwise) through a piece of forest and a heath area where there is just a lot of maintenance, this makes the paths sometimes difficult to walk on. The second part of the route goes up hill. The last part of the route is outside the park, direction Nijverdal. Unless you are a horse lover, this adds nothing. You better cut the route within the park boundaries.

Easy route over wide paths. The route runs past Drakensteyn Castle, after which it takes you to the village of Lage Vuursche before there is another route sign.

Nice walk, but the part along the lake is on tarmac and forbidden for dogs. During the rest of the walk dogs must be kept on a leish.

Fairly long walk around the Soesterduinen and adjacent forests. With this route you do not go through the dunes but along it, via wooded banks. The route has 2 points where you can choose a short distance.

Loved it! Great landscape with good views along the way. Multiple parking areas connect to the trail. The area is very popular with people walking their dog.

Nice route, unfortunately all over tarmac. The little boat ride over the Amstel is great though.

One of the most beautiful routes in the Netherlands, through the heaths, forests and for a long time the impressive building of Kootwijk radio.

I really liked the trail since its mostly on trails or bike paths. I hardly met with any cars along the whole trail. The markers are sometimes hard to follow because they offer cut offs and extentions. One time I went wrong and had to go back. The unpaved portions of the trail can become muddy after a lot of rain.

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.
