This 3 km long study trail is dedicated to a unique phenomenon in Lake Kolon, namely the immediate transition between a fenland and a dry sand dune range. The high-stand on one of the highest points of the area, the Bikatorok Hill, offers a great view on the landscape. The trail also enters a large habitat reconstruction area, the Big Water, where a large open water surface can be found. The trail also provides information about historical landscapes, landscape transformations and the wildlife of the sandy and fen habitats. The area has its own beauties in every season; therefore, we recommend returning in different parts of the year.
