    Today you have a long route of almost 22 kilometers ahead of you. You start this stage of the Maarten van Rossumpad south of Balkbrug. Soon you will walk past Ommerschans, once a colony for beggars, vagrants and "unwilling ones", who were employed here. They did that in beautiful green surroundings.Beyond Balkbrug you first walk through the open lands, until you reach the Staphorst forestry. For nature lovers, this part of the stage is the highlight, because you have the chance to bump into deer, foxes, badgers and birds of prey.You will be absorbed in the beautiful and authentic landscape and you walk on until you reach the river Reest. As soon as you cross the river, you pass the border between Drenthe and Overijssel. You can easily recognize this point by the toll booth with barrier.If you have time to spare, make a small swing to Huis Voorwijk at the end. Today's stage ends a few hundred meters further in De Wijk.
