Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The Leuvenumse Beek, also known as the Staverdense Beek, is one of the most beautiful and cleanest streams in the Netherlands. The stream can flow over the high sandy soils of the Veluwe thanks to a layer of clay in the subsurface that was deposited during the penultimate ice age.
The stream is one of the last naturally winding streams and also one of the few lowland streams (fed by surface water and groundwater) in the Netherlands. It is actually not one stream, but rather a swampy area with a system of streams and streams. With prolonged rainfall, the stream bursts its banks. The stream is characterized by slowly flowing water and a meandering (winding) course that is associated with it. The winding of the stream means that the banks in the outer bends are steeply sanded out by the water. The clear water and the steep banks make it an ideal place for the kingfisher to breed.
