The Drenthe Forest cycle trail will mainly take you through protected forest areas and the lovely little villages of Grolloo, Hooghalen and Schoonloo, but you will also pass the impressive Camp Westerbork and several striking radio telescopes.
The Drenthe Forest trail goes right through the Drentse Hooglanden, or the Highlands of Drenthe, which promise vast, picturesque landscapes with heathland, forests and Scottish Highlanders. A visit to Camp Westerbork Memorial Centre is sure to impress, bringing the tragedy of the Second World War to life. A little further down the road, you will suddenly find yourself surrounded by radio telescopes. Walk or cycle across the VAM mountain and enjoy the beautiful views from the highest point in Drenthe.
This 42-kilometre cycle trail will lead you past various highlights that have shaped Drenthe.
The trail starts at Camp Westerbork Memorial Centre, where there is ample parking.
