This section of the Southern Waterline trail between Terheijden and the Spinolaschans near Breda in the Netherlands initially seemed to me a somewhat boring trail, but that is not the case. Instead, the trail is very varied, going through meadows, forests and along defence line structures. A big improvement from the previous hike on this trail.
Southern Waterline trail from Prinsenbeek to Terheijden – ⭐⭐
So far, this is the least enjoyable part of the Southern Waterline trail: from Prinsenbeek to Terheijden. The trail itself is a bit boring, but all sorts of things did happen while hiking, including an encounter with a bird and a nice meeting with two doggies. The highlight of the trail, the Kleine Schans in Terheijden, comes at the end, so it makes this blog worth reading 😉
Wooden shoes trail: Jorden trail – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Wooden shoes trails are fun! I like wooden shoes trails so much that I have already chosen another one. In this blog, just a short description of the trail (a trail shortener 😉), a few photos and a simple sketch to illustrate. Nothing more. No need for a hiking map, the info on the website is clear enough. This time I chose for the Jorden trail.
Southern Waterline trail: from Zevenbergen to Prinsenbeek – ⭐⭐⭐
The Southern Waterline trails takes me from Zevenbergen past many farm fields and the small Mark river, and through nature reserves Haagse Beemden and Strijpen to Prinsenbeek.
Green Heart Hike – TTP Hazerswoude: Zaanse Rietveld trail – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
For Tourist Transfer Point trails, I make smaller blog versions. Trail information is easy to find and clear enough. A hiking map is not necessary for the blog. The trails can be followed via the hiking network. This time, I hiked the Zaanse Rietveld trail at TTP Hazerswoude in the Netherlands.
Wooden shoes trail: Rhenoijsche trail – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Wooden shoes trails are fun! I liked the first wooden shoes trails so much that I have already chosen another one. In this blog, just a short description of the trail (a trail shortener 😉), a few photos and a simple sketch to illustrate. Nothing more. No need for a hiking map, the info on the website is clear enough. This time I hiked the most enjoyable wooden shoes trail so far: the Rhenoijsche trail.
Southern Waterline trail: from Klundert to Zevenbergen – ⭐⭐⭐
In this part of the Southern Waterline trail, I first walk in Klundert towards the Groenstrook (Green Strip) to walk the bit I skipped last time. Then I go a full round through the lovely fortified town via the normal trail. After Klundert, I continue across the Moerdijk industrial area and along the Zevenbergseweg to my hometown of Zevenbergen.
Southern Waterline trail: from Willemstad to Klundert – ⭐⭐⭐
This time on the Southern Waterline trail, I take extensive time to see the beautiful fortified town of Willemstad. After Willemstad, I walk to the next fortified town: Klundert.
Southern Waterline trail: from Dinteloord to Willemstad – ⭐⭐⭐
Today I start again in Dinteloord, but this time I walk in the other direction, towards Willemstad. I pass two forts of the Southern Waterline: Fort de Hel (the Hell) and Fort Sabina. I end my hike in fortified town Willemstad. No, not on the island of Curaçao, but in the province of North Brabant in the Netherlands.
Southern Waterline trail: from Dinteloord to Steenbergen – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This time I hike the Southern Waterline trail in the Netherlands in the opposite direction. It is difficult to get very early to the village of De Heen, where I ended last time. It’s easier to go to Dinteloord instead. My plan is to add a trail from Natuurmonumenten at the Dintelse Gorzen to my trail. The Southern Waterline trail only goes past it. A good time to walk an extra detour through this area.
