Much information can be found on the website specifically dedicated to these "klompenpaden". (www.klompenpaden.nl)
What they all have in common is that these well-signposted tracks run along or across grassy fields, waters, dikes etc. and that many have extensive views and allow limited access to private estates to turn the path into a circular track.
In the wet seasons quite a number of these tracks are muddy and difficult going at times, but in periods of drought there is no problem of this kind whatsoever.
This Uddeler klompenpad is no exception to this and provides a good picture of the area of this province with its Veluwe (heathland and forests), farmland and meadows. It also crosses Kroondomein Het Loo.
NB This GPS track was recorded in April and crosses a part of the Kroondomein that is closed from September 15th to December 25th ! An alternative is provided by just following the regular signpost shields on poles.
The car park is fit for about 12 cars and is situated next to Uddelermeer lake. across the road there is catering available in a restaurant which has its own car park for many more cars.
About 5 meters in length
Kroondomein Het Loo
Gate closed Sept 15th to Dec 25th
NB An alternative route is accessible at an earlier cross roads, simply follow the arrows on the signposts (by not turning left where we did).
Back on track again
This is where you return to the signposted route that is open all year.
Unfortunately there is no bench to enjoy a few moments of rest near this quiet, idyllic lake.
