Ascent Trip Report

You could just drive up to a parking place and walk the last few hundred meters. But, being such a nice area, why not make a decent hike of it!

We parked the car at a parking space alongside the N225, just before Amerongen, at Plantage Willem III. The name refers to the tobacco plantations that used to be here from the 1850's untill the beginning of the 20th century.

The route mostly takes you through both deciduous and coniforous forests. Sometimes there's nice views overlooking the Rhine.

The top itself is nothing more than a bump, recognizable by two beaches standing at the top and an information pillar just behind it.
