Now that you know what Sommeltjes are, we can tell you a bit more about the trail. It starts on the Pelikaanweg near De Koog, where you can also park your car or bicycle.
At the edge of the forest there’s a big arch that you must pass through. This marks the start of the trail that is about 1.5 kilometres long. Everywhere alongside the route there are markers featuring a pair of eyes surrounded by green edging. If you see them during the walk you will know that you are still on the right trail.
Fun for children
Along the way, you will see more than just Sommeltjes. If you look carefully you will also see animals made of wood. These animals are hidden in the trees but can also be found on the ground. Then there is a section with lots of painted birdhouses and you will also pass a number of playgrounds.
Anyone fancy a break? No problem at all. There are a number of benches along the trail.
