Farmtracks and Fortifications
Difficulty: 2-3 (4-5 when wet)
This roadbook is quite a long one. I can't
remember the total distance but I wouldn't be surprised if it reaches a total of 180km and a greenlane
lenght of 130km.
Start is at Schouweiler, a village in southern Luxembourg. It lies halfway between Luxembourg city and Longwy in France.
Start and end is at the football playground. Exact position is N 49° 34,771 and E 5° 56,659.
The black dots with a white number as in case 50 can be ignored. In the original version they showed a possibility where you could break off when you were tired. A grey background indicates that you are in a village.Some more precisions:
Between 61 and 69 you will drive through a forest. Forest driving
isn't welcomed by the ONF, the Office National des Forêts. So if you want not to get into
possible trouble stay off this. Drive left at 61 and right at the next tarmac road and you will
fall onto the case 69 at the bottom of the next valley. Note the railway which you cross in a short
In case 118 I managed to get stuck many years ago. On the maps this is a road. Luckily for me it also had roadsigns I could use as an anchor point for my Tirfor. It was the only time I had gotten stuck on a road yet.
Case 124 has a DEEP ditch running near the track. Sometimes it's quite overgrown so if you take the corner too fast you need a crane to get you out again.Case 136 had sometimes a tremendous amount of mud together with deep ruts. Maybe it's a challenge or maybe it has been graded now.
Box 193 and 194. Take care. This is a busy road with high speed
trafic. After box 194 comes a muddy stretch.
Box 219 has a short steep uphill that arrives directly on the
road. When wet you take this with some speed and may run into the trafic. Also the track immediately
after the bend may have some steps.
