Useful departure points

The Sallandse Heuvelrug National Park offers you the facilities and opportunities to enjoy nature at its best. The nicest way to do this is by walking across the Sallandse Heuvelrug.

The Sallandse Heuvelrug is part of the Walking Network, a system of routes that uses departure points.

Sallandse Heuvelrug departure points for walking routes

How long are the routes? Is there anywhere dogs are not permitted? Which routes are Buggy-friendly? This overview tells you all you need to know.

A departure point has an information panel containing a map overview of al route options in the nearby area. A departure point is not always at a fixed address. An indication of the address and a navigation system will get you so far, but you have to look at the map for the exact location.

Walking tours

Routes between 3 km and 10 km can be followed as a circular tour from any departure points. Just follow the coloured arrows on the route posts that correspond to your chosen route.

Combining routes

Along the way, you can switch to different routes at the numbered route posts by choosing a route with a different colour. An ‘i’ on the post means there is an information panel.

Long-distance walking (LAW) posts

LAW trails in the Walking Network are marked with yellow/red or white/red arrows or squares along the way, and they are shown as yellow/red or white/red blocks on the information panels. Please note: The grey lines on the map connect routes but are not signposted.


If you wish to combine routes but you do not have a Walking Network map, just remember the numbers for the location of where you want to switch to a different colour.

Remember the name/number of the departure point if you also wish to end the walk there.
