This is a hidden gem close to the big international Airport Schiphol, south of the city center. This loop could be an option for anyone with a really long layover at the airport, but just as well if you want to get out of the city center and explore a new area.

What Others Are Saying
If you don't like running in busy city areas and prefer run through more outdoor spaces, with the smell of threes, or when you are a trail runner, this is the best spot to run near Amsterdam. Their is a big variety of tracks running through the forrest so you could go on running there forever but there are also two marked tracks, a 10 k and a 21 k track. Both start at the start of the Amsterdam rowing course (called bosbaan). From there, orange marked stumps will lead you. To be honest, this is my favorite running spot, whether it's the 10 k, or 21 k run, or just to go with to flow and see where you end on the high amount of tracks. The forest also has a big hill which you can approach from different sides for the people who want some altitude changes during their run.
