  • Hiking route 2964151
Your route starts at Pannenkoekenboerderij Brinkzicht. From here you will discover the basin of the Drentsche Aa, which has hardly changed over the past 150 years. The stream meanders as usual, because no large-scale land consolidation has taken place in this area. The picturesque esdorpen with their Saxon farms complete the jump back in time. You also walk across the Balloërveld, a vast heath with burial mounds and a real sheepfold. The trenches on the heath were dug when this area was used as a military training ground. On the heath you can see a pingo ruin, a remnant from the last ice age. A pingo is a hill with ice underneath, when the ice melts the pingo ruin is created: a pool of water. You walk back through the nice Gasteren.
