December 18, 2020
In this stage of the LF4 Midden-Nederlandroute you cycle through the typical cultural countries of the Achterhoek. Count on stately avenues with ancient trees and characteristic farms. After you have made a number of sharp turns, the cycle path directs you through the village of Vorden.During the part of the route around Borculo you experience the Achterhoek in optima forma. Beautiful estates, meandering streams and beautiful oak and beech forests form the backdrop. Unique to this part of the route are the many unpaved country roads. Don't worry, regular trekking tires will get you through strips just fine.A nice highlight, also in a literal sense, on the route you pass the Nature Observation Tower De Needse Berg. From this watchtower you can gaze from a height of sixteen meters over the eponymous nature reserve. The Needse Berg is an old moraine that was formed about 150,000 years ago by accumulating ice. Who knows, you might spot a red deer from the tower!The route then makes a small loop through the nature reserve. The finish is in front of a hotel in the Haaksbergen area. After you have checked in, you can visit the Oostendorper Watermill, which was already built in 1548.
