On Saturday the 29th of March it was a beautiful day and we decided to head for the Amsterdamse Waterleiding Duinen for a hike. It has been six months since we last were there. It was autumn back then, but now it is Spring which means the meadows and trees should start to get their blossom. We were looking forward to a day of hiking, enjoying nature, spotting deer and maybe even seeing a red fox.
When we arrived at De Zilk, we were immediately treated with a group of deer quite close to the entrance of the area. After enjoying the deer we started our hike through a part of the Amsterdamse Waterleiding Duinen which we didn't visit before. Along the way we crossed several meadows where sheep were grazing. After a while we followed a river until we reached the point where we spotted red foxes in the past. These foxes were present again today, so after having a picnic lunch we enjoyed watching the foxes for a while before starting our hike back. We chose to head back to the car via a different trail along which we spotted some more deer a couple of times.
We had a great day in the outdoors, hiking a little over 14 kilometers. Bellow are some pictures and a GPS track log of this hike:
