- The Ilpenstein trail (yellow) 4.0 km is a short hike over the Purmer ring dike around the site on the Hofweg where castle Ilpenstein (1622-1872) was once located, at the level of the farm of the same name. With its towers and moat it looked like a real medieval castle.
- The Fiery Tail trail (blue) 6.7 km leads over the cycle path (Oudelandsdijkje) and back over the grass dike of the Purmer. On the way, the trail provides views of the large, straight Purmer with its polder woods, and the old polder The Fiery Tail with its narrow meadow plots. Dogs are not allowed.
- The Purmerland trail (green) 13.0 km explores Purmerland and Ilperland as far as the green outskirts of Purmerend Weidevenne. The trail provides panoramic views from the (North Holland) Kanaalweg and from the Ilpendam-Den Ilp transverse path. Dogs are not allowed.
