Nederhorst den Berg – Lage Vuursche

Stage   no. 2
Date Saturday 19 February 1994
Distance stage 29,0 km
Distance acum. 55,5 km
Quality of signs Good
Quality of the hike A (fantastic!): nice changes in scenery, crossing typical Dutch landscapes

Just like during the first stage, today is another gloomy wintersday. First I take trains and busses to go back to café The Beercabin.

I continue the Trail along the river Vecht for a short while. The Trail leaves the river and heads towards the lakes in the south, the Lakes of Ankeveen.

The Trail leads straight between the lakes, using a narrow dike for a few kilometers. It is very quiet and, thanks to the quiet atmosphere, very impressive.

After passing the tiny village of Ankeveen I continue my way heading for the Spanderswoud forrest and the city of Hilversum. In a big circle (north and east) the Trail surrounds Hilversum. I pass some haybushes that look familiar to me from the time I was soldier and serving my duty in this area, and so do the barraks of camp Crailo that is along the Trail. Close to the village of Baarn I pass the castle Groeneveld, where a lot of tourists are stroling around. Some minutes later, at the Hilversumse Hay, I am all by myself again. The weather is starting to brighten up, and with a chilly sun I arrive at my finish of today, the typical village of Lage Vuursche.

It is impossible to leave the village without eating a pancake in one of the many pancakerestaurants, so afterwards I take the bus and train back home again.
