- The Noordmeer trail (blue) 6.8 km is a short walk around the Noordmeer, a deep polder that looks a lot like an empty, green bath tub. On the other side of the grass dike you look out over an open, wet marsh landscape. Dogs are prohibited. The trail is not accessible during breeding season (15th March -15th June).
- De Tramline trail (green) 6.6 km is short trail over the former tracks of the Waterland tram to Monnickendam. The trail runs past new construction in Waterland style, drained lakes and a sanitized toxic polder. Dogs are not allowed.
- De Boot path trail (red) 10.6 km is called after the swampy footpath along the south edge of Varkensland nature reserve. Via the sober sister village, Watergang you walk back along the Broekervaart. Dogs are not allowed. During breeding season (15th March to 15th June) this trail is not accessible.
