This beautiful trail is the perfect opportunity to discover the landscape of the Cuesta, the first hill in the Lorraine area.

In the Attert valley, you will cycle between the Anlier forest and the famous cuestas of the Lorraine region. From the village of Attert, on the right, you can see the river meandering through the valley.

The path then takes us to another picturesque village, Grendel. Its meadows, to the East, are now a natural reserve. The itinerary features quite a nice variety of relief: slopes and valleys from the West to the East, alternating hard and softer rock.

The Cuesta Route will also introduce you to the local cultural heritage: wash houses, fountains, drinking trough, calvaries... are all part of the region's identity. Soon, you will arrive in Tontelange, at the edge of Lorraine: notice the change in architecture, the houses are built tightly close to each other, all along the roads.

Cycle along the "red coast" to go to Metzert next, at the bottom of the cuesta. Nobressart, in the last kilometres of the itinerary add a beautiful conclusion: it is considered one of the prettiest villages in Wallonia.
