We did the easy one along the river. Breathtaking views. 12 km in 3 hours are done easily (were over 50). You can go for a dip in the river at several places along the route. Take your swimming gear with you

Stunning scenery and different landscapes. Not recommended for beginners since it's quite a strenuous trek, especially when you get to the zig-zag path down the mountain. Take lots of water!

Wonderfull hiking trails and stunning scenary. The river trail is highly recomended and a easy 10km hike. The Oudebos circle route of 23km is more challenging but realy worth the effort. The trails are well maintained.
