From the village of Tijnje you walk along Kanaalsweg road to the Tripgemaal museum. Then you follow the course of the Hooivaart waterway to the De Deelen wetland reserve. The peat pits at De Deelen are relatively young. In this area, peat cutting did not happen until around 1920. From here the route continues to the medieval village of Aldeboarn. This was once the principal village in the valley through which the Koningsdiep river runs. You follow the river to the villages of Nes and Akkrum. The latter is a popular water sports destination.

The 14 sections of the Koningspad XL Hiking Trail Network take you past the highlights of the Koningsdiep stream valley. A journey through meadows, heaths and the open landscape of Friesland.
