Ureterp - Bakkeveen | Koningspad XL Hiking Trail Network: Section 11

12.3 km

From Ureterp you make your way to the Koningsdiep river along the medieval Baekendyk dike. This medieval dike once protected local farmland from the acidic water discharged from the raised bogs. The route then skirts the edge of the ‘t Oude Bosch nature reserve and the De Slotplaats country estate. To get to ’t Foarwerk, a former monastery farm, you cross the Koningsdiep river again. The last part of the route leads you along the Bakkeveenster Vaart canal, which was dug to transport turf. The walk ends at the restaurant on the De Slotplaats country estate.

The 14 sections of the Koningspad XL Hiking Trail Network take you past the highlights of the Koningsdiep stream valley.
