With this walk you make a wonderful trip through the Dutch Wood. A beautiful nature reserve of no less than 900 hectares near the Oostvaardersplassen. After the reclamation of Flevoland in the years 1972/1973, the area was mainly planted with poplars, willows and alder. Trees that are known to grow quickly. Another part of the area would initially become a residential area. In the end, this residential area did not materialize and slower growing trees, such as oak and beech, were planted here. This created a nature reserve where impressive animals such as the kestrel, pine marten and grass snake (non-toxic!) have found their home.
