All is set up to join Kristyna and Maria for the first Friskis hike of the 2019/20 season!
When? Sunday, 22 September 10:00-14:30
Where? Kautenbach (meeting at 10:00 at Kautenbach train station).
Transport: Train: Leaves Lux. Gare at 09.16 with trains back every hour. Car: Count 50-60 minutes from Lux city. Car park at the station.
Distance? 13,5 km round-way (approx. 4 hours walking at moderate elevation).
We do not expect you to be hiking champions, but we expect participants to be able to walk at a gentle, but sustained, pace with some elevation for about 4 hours, so please consider before registering.
Price? FREE for both members and non-members (in case of full capacity, members will be given priority)
What to bring: Water (1-1,5 litres), Packed lunch or any snack that keeps you going
What to wear: Comfortable hiking clothes adapted to the weather. Proper hiking shoes/boots or any other shoe providing a safe grip on rocks and slippery areas. NO TENNIS SHOES OR ALIKE PLEASE! If you have hiking sticks, you can bring them along.
The route: From the train station in Kautenbach we will walk through the forested slopes alongside the Wiltz River in the direction of Goebelsmuhle. After about 1h30 of gentle ups and downs on the forest path (with a brief rocky section where you will appreciate to have solid hiking shoes), we will reach a bridge and cross to the other side of the valley.
We will make shorter breaks for water and snacks
The path on the other side can be narrow and a bit exposed at times but you will be rewarded by great vistas of the surrounding valleys, some of the best ones in the region (also part of the famous Escapardenne-Lee trail).
After another 1-1h30h, we will stop for lunch to enjoy the view. A short way down and we will be back in Kautenbach where we may want to grab a celebratory drink in a local café!
Places are limited so early registration is required! Members and non-members of Friskis are welcome but priority is given to members. The trail is not suitable for families with children.
