Etappe 15: van Vaassen naar Hoornerveen – Maarten van Rossumpad
Pauline van der Waal planned a hike.
November 25, 2020
Get ready for the longest stage of the Maarten van Rossumpad. If you run the fifteenth stage from start to finish, you have no less than 25 kilometers on the clock. Also keep in mind in your planning that public transport is not optimal at the starting point, but certainly at the end point. Leave early or stay overnight is the motto.We start this stage in Vaassen. If you have opted for an overnight stay, you can choose to spend some more time at Castle Cannenburch. If not, you literally ignore the castle and walk around the accompanying park towards the meadows north of Vaassen.In the direction of Epe you walk alternately through open and wooded area and you will unnoticeably make some altitude meters in this slightly hilly area. This is certainly the case with the Renderklippen, a nature reserve consisting of heather-covered moraines just above Epe. In between, you walk across heather, which turns a beautiful purple in late summer when it is in bloom. Today's end point is just past Heerderstrand, near Hoornerveen.
