The Loosdrechtse Plassen are popular as a water sports area, but you can also enjoy walking in the vicinity of these ponds. You walk along the lake Vuntus, where you will encounter many water plants and birds. The starting point of this route is on the dike between Vuntus and the Loenderveense Plas. From here you walk over the dike in the direction of Nieuwerhoek. From the dike you have a beautiful view of the water on both sides. After a three kilometer walk you will pass Fort Spion. At the edge of the lake Wijde Blik you will find Molen Gabriel. This mill was built here in 1635 to drain the polder Kortenhoef together with two other mills that have since disappeared. The mill was restored externally in the second half of the 20th century. Nowadays the mill functions as a house and the mill cannot be visited from the inside.
