Ulven7470: -(da)- Så er det slut her [xx(]. Tak for alle besøgene, men efter 5 år er den gamle Alhedesti godt slidt og trænger til en pause. Men opgiv ikke helt for vi finder bestemt på noget nyt her på stien inden alt for længe [:D].
-(en)- Now it's over here [xx (]. Thank you for all the visits, but after 5 years, the old Alhedesti is well worn and needs a break. But do not give up completely, we will certainly come up with something new here on the path before too long [:D].

Alhedestien
Alhedestien mellem Herning og Viborg er anlagt på den nedlagte Herning-Viborg jernbane, der blev indviet i 1906 med det formål at udnytte og opdyrke Alheden. Banen var allerede fra starten en succes, og store transporter af mergel gav indtægter, der var med til at forvandle heden til frugtbart agerland. Togtrafikken fortsatte frem til 1971, hvor persontrafikken blev indstillet. I 1977 ophørte også godstransport, hvorefter skinner og sveller blev fjernet. Banen blev i de efterfølgende år belagt med asfalt og fliser, hvorefter den daværende trafikminister Jan Trøjborg i 1995 officielt kunne indvie Alhedestien som cykel-, ride- og vandresti. Stisystemet er på 49 km., og på de første 46 km. fra Herning er jernbanens gamle kilometersten reetableret med en sten for hver 200 meter. Disse kilometersten anvender vi til at identificere de enkelte cacher. Yderligere oplysninger om Alhedestien kan bl.a. fås på følgende link http://viborg.dk/db/Turist.

I hver ende af sporet er der en bonuscache (en i viborg og en i Herning). For at finde disse skal du samle hints i nogle af cacherne langs Alhedestien. Så hold godt øje med hintene og husk at notere dem ned.

Alhedestien between Herning and Viborg is located on the former Herning-Viborg Railway. It was opened in 1906 with the aim to exploit and cultivate Alheden. The track was already from the beginning a success, and large movements of marl gave income which helped to transform the moorland into fertile farmland. Rail traffic continued until 1971, when passenger traffic was stopped. In 1977 also freight traffic was suspended, and rails and sleepers were removed. The course was in the following years coated with asphalt and tiles. In 1995 could the then Transport Minister Jan Trojborg officially inaugurate Alhedestien as cycling-, riding- and hikingtrail. The trail-network is 49 km. and on the first 46 km. from Herning the old railway milepost are restored with one stone for each 200 meters. These milestone we use to identify the individual caches. Additional information about Alhedestien be found at the following link http://viborg.dk/db/Turist.

At each end of the track there is a bonus cache (one in Viborg and one in Herning). To find these you must gather clues in some of the caches along the Alhedestien. So keep your eyes open and remember to write down the hints.
