The Gelderse Hout is very suitable for long walks. There is a walk of 2.5 kilometers. (Henkepad) The managers have constructed a pinetum in the Gelderse Hout. A pinetum is a living collection of pines and spruces, conifers or rather cone-bearers. However, the clay soil on which the Gelderse Hout is laid is not really suitable for conifers. Most conifers prefer lighter soils, which also contain less lime. Nevertheless, the Gelderse Hout has retained a wide variety of tree species from this set-up. This also includes several non-native conifers. The redwood, the giant tree from California, the sitka spruce from western Canada (Sitka is an island off the coast of Vancouver) and the giant fir can be admired here. The most common native deciduous trees are found along the route.
