This MTB route is 19 kilometres in length and can be extended with an extra 8-kilometre loop.

This route is suitable for both beginner and advanced MTBers. Whether this route is suitable for you really only depends on how driven you are. You cycle along grassy paths, narrow and curvy single tracks and broader, straight paths. It takes you on a winding trajectory through forests and heathland and crossing several small bridges. There is the occasional (considerable) climb. At a certain point, you encounter a small signpost; this is where you can choose between the 19- and 27-kilometre routes. Havelte is well known for its two dolmens, its burial mounds, nature reserve Brandveen and the charming hamlets Oosterzand and Westerzand. In Havelte itself, you encounter monumental buildings, renovated Saxon farms and a sheepfold with a sheep herd. Havelte is surrounded by expansive forests, heathlands, sand dunes and meadows. The route takes you through areas belonging to, among others, the Ministry of Defence, Natuurmonumenten (the Society for Nature Conservation) and Staatsbosbeheer (the Forestry Commission).
