Hiking route through the Horsterwold
11.21 km (Approximately 02:48 u)
Put on your sturdy walking shoes for a varied walk through the Horsterwold: the largest continuous deciduous forest in the Netherlands. You can see chestnuts, oaks, poplars and cherry trees. You pass the Groenewoudse Tocht, a watercourse that you can quietly view from a bench. Deeper in the forest is the Stille Kern: a quiet piece of primeval nature where a herd of wild Konik horses graze. The Tuurtoren, a twelve-metre high watchtower, is located next to a few lakes. Then you continue through the forest. However young the Horsterwold is, the trees look as if they have been here for hundreds of years. The clay soil is so fertile that many trees have grown spectacularly fast and that a wealth of mushrooms and plant species can be seen. The route ends at Camping de Parel.
