Bell chair
The route starts on the edge of Avenhorn. You soon walk through the ribbon village of Grosthuizen. You will see some characteristic farmhouses, in between you have beautiful views over the wide grasslands. You pass a bell tower that was built in 1974 on the site of the church that was demolished ten years earlier. The clock'disappeared\\\' in a shed and was rediscovered in 1972: it is a Hemony clock from 1664.

The Hulk
In Scharwoude you walk through De Hulk, a recreation area just as green as the famous action hero. Woodland alternates with shrubs, grasslands and ecologically constructed banks. How peaceful it is here! Incidentally, De Hulk is located at the crossroads of two old transport routes: the towing canals from Hoorn to Alkmaar and Amsterdam. You walk back to the starting point through Polder de Westerkogge.
