After three times hiking on the Migration birds trail in a row, it is now the turn of the Great rivers trail again. The last time, I ended in Ameide. That is therefore my starting point for today. I walk along the river Lek, through the Zouweboezem nature reserve and via Lexmond through the polder to a suburb of Vianen. I pass several fruit orchards and am curious to see whether there is already some blossoms on the trees.
The river Lek
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.
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.
This is the report of the hike called the Willige Langerak trail, located near Lopik in the Netherlands.
