Summary:
Can't add much more, very nice enviroment, almost undutch views and hills. Mostly forrest dirtground with quite some roots here and there. Can't blame people for bringing their fullies, rough ride. Perfect for some aggressive xc racing in holland.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None that know of.

Reviewed by: Hildo , from Zaandam

Summary:
A really nice trail with a lot of variation, like technical downhills(sand!) and fast cornering singeltrails. The views are great too, dunes and the woods. Always fun because there are always people riding the trail. Good to ride for everyone but it's a tough one, and bring your Camelbak. Well just ride it! And remember"BE GOOD OR EAT WOOD!!!"

Recommended Route:
Start at "Duinvermaak" in a place called Bergen.Because you get the killerclimb in the beginning instead at the end! Don't forget to race down the stairs at the parkingplace..

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Spaarnwoude, real good racing track. No nice views and stuff but just a tough XC-course with a lot of climbs.

Summary:
Its a cool trail. Variating. Hard technical climbs and decends and long flat roads to ride fast on. A killer for the beginner. I am a hardtail rider. I love this ride.

Recommended Route:
I always start at the original starting point. But recommended to start after this point when you ride it for the first time.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Beach rides. I live 300 metres of the coast. Its my back yard.

Reviewed by: Dustin Gods , from The Hague, Holland

Summary:
For Holland it is a very heavy and technical trail. It is much like an interval training, short and steep climbs, which techical intervals. The trail is a lot off fun to ride. Ride it two (or three) times and you will be broke.

Recommended Route:
Start somewhere down the route, the trail will always be a blast.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Zoetermeer en The Hague.

Reviewed by: Arjen , from Rotterdam

Summary:
One of the nicest trails in Holland. You can' t go wrong and it is sometimes fast and flat, sometimes very steep and technical. The trail is very hard on those who don't have headshocks or have a hardtail, om account of all the tree roots. Especially in the dunes the views are extremely nice.

Recommended Route:
Start in Schoorl, near Restaurant Duinvreugd, or something like that.
