Nette-Schieferpfad

Hike along the Eifel Traumpfad Nette-Schieferpfad (Nette Slate Trail)

Through the idyllic river landscape of the Nette, along narrow paths and past rough slate cliffs. Glimpses of slate mining, great views and adventure in the tunnel of a former railway track round off this trail splendidly.

Description of the Nette-Schieferpfad

The trail goes over the Nette stone bridge in Trimbs into the flowering valley meadows of the Nette. Initially it follows the rippling rivulet and then starts to ascend along soft grass footpaths. Across rare low nutrient calcareous grassland and past rough slate cliffs, soon “Trimbs Switzerland“ is reached where a grand view of Trimbs and Welling is awaiting. Continuing along the trail the hiker goes through spacious fields up to the Burberg hill. Here there is a wonderful all round panorama view of the Nette valley. The path continues along the slope down into the Nette valley.

Having arrived in the valley, the hiker follows the murmuring Nette along a beautiful natural footpath. Through sparse alluvial forests the trail goes slowly but continuously uphill, until the mighty portal of “Hausen 2” is reached. A fancy for adventure and railway romance overcomes the hiker on walking through the 250 m long, lit tunnel. At the end there is a unique view of the Nette viaduct before the trail continues into the silent forest. Following the edge of the forest there are repeatedly wonderful views before the steep descent returns down into the Nette valley. After several kilometres along the river and through narrow side valleys the hiker reaches his destination in Trimbs.
