Stage 1

The route starts at Kautenbach, a must-visit site of hiking paths, leading to the other part of the Oesling. The interest here is heading towards the “Kiischpelt” entity, in the centre of the steep-sided valleys, taking the hiker towards the charming village of Munshausen and following Woltz valley towards Clervaux.

Stage 2

The path follows the river then rises on the hillside to reach Troisvierges. It circumvents the market town and continues westwards, following the charming Troine creek valley to complete the stage at Asselborn mill.

Stage 3

Next the trail wanders between Hoffelt and Buret, passing from the Rhine river basin to the river Meuse, crossing regions that all have a fascinating history, recounting William of Orange’s dream. It runs along the outskirts of Tavigny, the historical site of the Bernistap canal project, to continue as far as Houffalize.

 Plateau Herbager

Stage 4

Deep valleys, wild and mysterious rivers, a small ridge path between two dales, the forest is everywhere as far as the magnificent steep slopes near the confluence. The trail enjoys the natural silence, with the wind rustling the leaves and the sound of water. A few more twists and turns before rising to the plateau to return to Nadrin.

Stage 5

The final stage takes us along the forest paths in search of history, at the Cheslé Celtic site. A climb onto a plateau, a few splendid views, including the one of Crestelles… just a few more metres to walk until Borzée, trail the side of the hill, follow Deister cornice and discover just below the very beautiful Roche-en-Ardenne.
