The Treek Route
The Treek-Henschoten estate in one of the largest private estates in the Netherlands. On this cycle route, the dry nature of the hills and ridges in Utrecht develops gradually into the damper nature of the low-lying valley in Gelderland. Due to this, the route goes through a very varied natural area.
