The route starts at Rijsterbosch. In the wooded Gaasterland you will find many beautiful plants: helmet flower, wood anemone, collar anemone and wild garlic are scattered throughout the area. In the spring, a colony of sand martins incubates its young in self-dug cavities. You will also see the hawk, sparrowhawk and buzzard. Marina De Koggeplaet is perhaps the most beautiful spot on the Fluessen. It is an idyllic spot right on the largest lake in Friesland, the Fluessen and the Heegermeer. The bell tower of Ypecolsga is located in the cemetery of the village. A bell tower was often located in smaller municipalities that could not afford a large church tower, so residents still had bells for small ceremonies. Molen De Jager is a tower mill built in 1719 that was used to saw wood.

Just as impressive as the steam technique is the beautiful architecture based on the Amsterdam School. The new visitor center was completed in 2011.
