The hike passes through the village of Hoscheid to then come back down in a North-West direction to the Lëtschbaach valley. After a zigzag climb, the path turns to the South-West and leads to the St. Michel chapel at the bottom of the Schlinder valley. The trail then snakes through the leafy woods of the place known as Malpartes on the hills.
Crossing the CR 348, the route goes down via the Hoflee and crosses the "bridge" then goes up alongside the Gëischelterbaach stream. The route then turns towards the left and slopes back up in the direction of the Hockslay and Ueweschlee viewpoints. Finally a beautiful descent along the ridge of the Bomm leads to Kautenbach and its railway station.

Like all villages of the Ardennes plateau, Hoscheid still retains some traces of its rural past with architectural heritage that reflects the way of life of our ancestors. The triangular farm, for example, shows the importance of the cereal culture in this part of the Ardennes plateau.
After Hoscheid, the ESCAPARDENNE LEE TRAIL follows part of the themed "path of sound". Various stations invite hikers to stop and listen to discover the sounds around them or make their own.
The chapel, called St. Michel, was erected in 1874 at the request of the inhabitants when the hamlet was most populated.
A beautiful descent along the rocky ridge known as "Hoflee" to the inaccessible valley of the "Gëischelterbaach" stream.
The Doosbach bunker, the site of intriguing memories, is a little way off the Trail.
This viewpoint is situated on a rocky outcrop that towers 200m over the valley of the Wiltz and offers a beautiful view of the railway station and the village of Kautenbach.
Before arriving back at the starting point in Kautenbach, hikers descend an imposing rocky ridge with three historic viewpoints in succession: from the "Ueweschleid" site, past the take-off spot for Paragliding, to the "Bomm".
For hard-core hikers, Kautenbach is also the starting point for the ESCAPARDENNE Eisleck Trail, which reaches La Roche-en-Ardenne (B) after 104km (5 stages).
From the train station of Kautenbach, hikers can easily access the ESCAPARDENNE Eisleck Trail and the ESCAPARDENNE Lee Trail, long-distance hikes awarded the European quality label of "Leading Quality Trails- Best of Europe".
