Ascent Trip Report

I parked at a free lot on the north side of Urk (N52.66366 E5.59483) and then walked south into the town. Per my observations and LiDAR data (AHN3), the highest natural ground in Urk (N52.662321 E5.593013) appears to be along Wijk 3, immediately west of the Kerkje aan de Zee. Although the church's cemetery is slightly higher, it's clear from the LiDAR data that it was raised artificially, so I do not feel like it needs to be visited.

It should be noted that the high point mentioned above is not in the same location as the high point currently marked on Peakbagger.

If the Urk lighthouse is open, I highly recommend visiting it -- you'll get the views the natural high point can't quite afford.
