Nondik gertu: Breedeveen, Utrecht (Nederland)
For the main part this track follows the signs of a long distance trail called Utrechtpad, specifically stage 4. It starts out from a bus stop in Leersum near the Donderberg roundabout on the edge of the village. If you hop on local bus 50 from Elst (bus stop Molen) it takes about 12 minutes to get to the starting point (or vice versa).
The track covers many of the highlights that Utrechtse heuvelrug has to offer. A monument with extensive views (Nellesteijn tomb monument), hills, heath, moorland, fens, forests etc.
The car park near bus stop Elst, Molen offers wide views across Nederrijn river to start out with or to round off with.
All in all a tour well worth doing on good paths!
On Saturdays / Sundays you can climb all the way to the top of this monument to have even more extensive views al across Betuwe and the province of Utrecht.
Not open in the breeding season from March to July, but could be a nice alternative in other seasons.
Views towards Betuwe in the far distance. The info panel indicates exactly what it is that you look at.
