The 7.5 km Vredevoetpad Natuurmonumenten loop-walk circles the Tienhovense Plassen and passes a museum, historic windmill and birdwatching areas.
The Vredevoetpad starts at the Streekmuseum Vredegoed. Check their website for opening times. The path passes through marsh areas that are bird breeding grounds. Stay on the path. Eventually the path joins the Dwarsdijk road and passes the water-filled remains of peat diggings. You will pass the windmill Trouwe Wachter. When you turn left on Nieuweweg you are following the border of Utrecht and North Holland. There are good views across the Breukelveensche or Stille Plas to the north. The return leg south is along the road through the villages of Tienhoven and Oud-Maarsseveen.
