Footpaths around Westerschouwen


The Westerschouwen forestry area contains five colour-marked footpaths set out by Staatsbosbeheer. The routes follow sandy dirt tracks and take you to the most beautiful parts of the woods.
The various routes which have been set out are:

  • Hoekeputjetocht (7 km, white): Straight through one of the oldest parts of these woods, with wind-formed trees and a great view from the wooden lookout tower. Deciduous woods.

  • Schuilhuttocht (8 km, yellow): Past a brick lookout tower, the Boomjesput and the Meeuwenduinen.

  • Theunesses Hiltocht (7 km, blue): Past a lookout tower, the boundary of the woods, the Meeuwenduinen, and a fragrant deciduous wood with balsam poplars, the Hoekeputje. The route also takes in Theunis' Hill, named after Teunis Rosmolen who lived at the duck decoy in the Westerse Laagte from 1893 onward and used to walk over the high dunes to Burgh.

  • Meeuwenduinwandeling (7 km, green): Past a lookout tower, over a rough sand track which is heavy going, right across the dunes to the beach near the lighthouse, then along the sanddrifts and through the Meeuwenduinen. This walk is only open outside the breeding season (15 March to 15 July).
