Hiking route 334652
Provided by: Groots Genieten
Vast, quiet forests, a picturesque stream valley and beautiful panoramas: this long walking tour takes you through the beautiful surroundings of the Lemelerberg and the Earlier Achterbroek. Take provisions with you, because you walk through nature almost the entire route!
Lemelerberg Nature Reserve
A hundred years ago, the Lemelerberg was an area eaten bare by sheep. When the herd disappeared, the mountain slowly grew thick with forest. In order to preserve the remaining heathlands, a herd of Veluwe heath sheep has been grazing again since the 1980s. So that you still have beautiful panoramas from the almost eighty meters high Lemelerberg. Is it a bit foggy? The whimsical shapes you see are juniper bushes, not white weeds.
Church bridge near Giethmen
You also walk on the old church path between Giethmen and Ommen. In the past, the inhabitants of Giethmen used to walk this path to the church twice a Sunday. They crossed the river Regge via the charming drawbridge, an icon. On the 34 meter high Besthmenerberg is a lookout tower that offers you a magnificent view of the area. The route ends in the middle of the woods at group accommodation De Wolfskuil. You can stay here and enjoy nature further.
