Your walking route starts at the historic Restaurant De Nieuwe Hoef.

Here you will find a mosaic of deciduous and coniferous forests, now and then you pass fields and grasslands. You also cross the Rovertse Leij, via the Paradijsbrug. Take a moment at Execution Site and War Graves Gorp and Rovert, where 5 hostages were executed in reprisal for the sabotage on August 7, 1942 on a railway line in Rotterdam. In the hamlet of Gorp you can see some old farms and a monumental hunting lodge. A beautiful place that takes you back in time.
