The track crosses the Grand Est region from north to south. This region is formed by a combination of the Alsace, Champagne-Ardenne and Lorraine-regions.
It’s a relatively recent TET-route and was made available at the beginning of this year. Due to corona we had to wait several months to be able to explore it. The route is a proven concept of the Trans Euro Trail, a mix of field- and forest roads, small asphalt tracks and the occasional single track or technical passage. Kick off is just south of Shengen, but I start about 50 kilometres further. The route winds south between the French - German border. To make a turn to the west underneath Metz, the former capital of the Lorraine region. This part of the route mainly runs on larger field roads.
