Friese Woudenpad

LAW1-1, Friese Woudenpad (old name: Zevenwoudenpad): Lauwersoog - Steenwijk, 147 km (+ 85 km additional trails)

The trail begins at the Waddenzee, in the north of the Netherlands, on the border of Friesland and Groningen. The Lauwersmeer is a nature reserve, a secluded area of Waddenzee. A second branch of this path starts in Holwerd, a typical Frisian village along the Waddenzee.

The first stages, the path goes through the Frisian polder landscape with its distinctive black and white cows and huge farms. Later, the path crosses two sand ridges: the Friese Wouden and the Drents-Friese Wold. Here you can enjoy small-scale agricultural landscapes (or what remains of it). Finally, you will visit the beautiful Weerribben, an area of lakes and marshes.

This official LAW is marked with red-white signs. A topo guide is for sale. The trail ends in Steenwijk, but you can continue your way on the Pionierspad, and eventually via the Floris V path and the GR12 you will even reach Paris.
