This is the last hike of 2020 on the Great rivers trail. This part goes from Nieuwpoort to Ameide, with a short extra walk from Schoonhoven due to public transport.
All blog posts in a row.
This time, the hike of the Great rivers trails starts in Ammerstol and continues along the Lek to Schoonhoven. I make an extra detour through the historic city centre of Schoonhoven and then take the ferry to the other side of the Lek. Finally, I walk along the still intact city ramparts of Nieuwpoort.
A report on the section of the long-distance hiking trail the Grote Rivierenpad between Loetbos and Ammerstol via Bergambacht.
Today, I reach the Rottemeren via the Great rivers trail in the Netherlands. I start my hike in Zevenhuizen and walk towards the Rottemeren and the Rotte, then I go through the Hoge and Lage Bergse woods. At my destination in Hillegersberg Rotterdam, I have completed Variants A and B of the Great rivers trail in two circles.

A report of a great hike on the Grote Rivierenpad. This time from the Loetbos to Gouderak in the Netherlands. The morning mist gave this hike a fairytale atmosphere. Highly recommended!
This hike on the Great rivers trail goes from Kinderdijk to the Loetbos near Lekkerkerk in the Netherlands. I start in Alblasserdam at the windmills of Kinderdijk, then go to Krimpen aan de Lek. I make an extra round trip to the Bakkerswaal duck decoy, go through the Krimpenerwaard and the Krimpenerhout. I end up in the Loetbos.
Today I have yet another plan: to photograph the windmills of Kinderdijk at sunrise. Therefore I decided to walk the part of the Grote Rivierenpad between Hendrik-Ido Ambacht and Kinderdijk in the opposite direction. If the sunrise is disappointing at this time, I have another chance next time. To make the hike a little longer, I also added an extra round trip through the Crezéepolder near Ridderkerk.
Two of my watercolour paintings of a Japanese and Chinese temple can be admired this month in an art studio in Rotterdam called City Art by artist Chris Ripken.
