Hiking in the National Park

A network of paths have been laid out, most of which are open to the public. Dogs must always be leashed in the dunes. The coloured posts have various meanings:

  • Yellow: a through-way, for example, to the beach
  • Blue: a circular tour whereby one ends at the starting point
  • Green: a path in a (protected) rest-area; open to the public from 1st of August (Eierlandse Duinen 16th of August en Slag achter De Geul 1st of September) till 28th of februar
  • Red: a nature path. All paths in the woods are open to the public.
