    Dwingelderveld National Park is the largest wet heathland area in Western Europe. In this Natura 2000 area there are two herds of sheep with a shepherd who graze the heather, keeping an open landscape. The varied landscape consists of wet lowlands - also called drenches - and high sand ridges. You see heather, forest, juniper bushes, drifting sand and more than forty fens. A number of these originated in the Ice Age, others were caused by peat excavations.During this trail run of approximately 11.5 kilometers you can enjoy all the variety that the Dwingelderveld has. This way you first walk through the forest from the parking lot. Nice training on a winding forest path, before you walk a little further on the vast heath.Via straight paths you walk through the heather bushes towards the Davidsplassen. To see the many birds that live here, turn left to the bird hide. If you don't want to get out of your rhythm, it is better to skip it and keep following the path.Chances are you will encounter one of two herds of sheep during your trail run. A special sight how these animals roam the heath. Real lucky birds see even more: all three Dutch snake species (the adder, the smooth snake and the grass snake) live on the Dwingelderveld. Do you spot one?
