Akkrum - Raerd | Koningspad XL Hiking Trail Network: Section 6
The first part of this route takes you from the village of Akkrum to the village of Jirnsum. You then walk through an old cultural landscape known as the Frisian grasslands or ‘Friese Greiden’, where there are isolated farms built on dwelling mounds or terps. The dwelling mounds or ‘terps’ protected the farmers from the high waters of the former Middelzee estuary, into which the Koningsdiep river once flowed. The route ends at Jongemastate Park near the village of Raerd.
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.
To find out more about this section of the network, take a look at the detailed description of the route with photos and videos.
