Length: 9.3 mi • Est. 4 h 12 m
This walking route follows part of the route of the Leuvenumse Beek, one of the few waters in the Veluwe. The rainwater immediately sinks into the sandy soil and only in a few places does it rise again as seepage. Such as at Uddelermeer, where a stream originates that is first called Staverdense Beek, then Leuvenumse Beek and then Hierdense Beek. A gorgeous trail to experience the most beautiful parts of the region.Show more
