To test our gear one last time before hitting the Pacific Crest Trail, we explored the Sûre valley and its beautiful rocky ridges on the Lee Trail, one of Luxembourg’s finest hiking trails.
In three sunny days and two freezing nights, Katrien, Stefaan and I hiked the trail's 52 kilometres from Kautenbach to Ettelbruck. After setting off from Kautenbach, we immediately got served the first of many steep climbs. With 2,000 metres of elevation gain, the trail is nothing if not demanding, but the scenery is worth the exertion.
In 2015, the route was awarded the European label 'Leading Quality Trail' for good reason: largely unpaved, great viewpoints, clear waymarks and easy access to public transportation along the trail!
