The trail leads you into the Noardlike Fryske Wâlden National Landscape conservation area, where you find yourself in unique countryside with meadows enclosed by rows of alders. The rows of trees help to increase biodiversity by providing shelter for many different kinds of plants, insects and birds.

The last part of the trail leads along a beautiful little path just south of the small village of Wouterswoude.
