    The HOAG route is a freight route between the cities of Duisburg and Oberhausen, which has been converted into a cycle path.
    Hoag Route Marking the footpath and bicycle lane

    The railway line of the former Hüttenwerke Oberhausen Aktiengesellschaft (HOAG) connects the Duisburg district of Walsum with Oberhausen Sterkrade. The HOAG route originally served coal transport from the Sterkrade colliery to the Rhine port in Walsum.

    After five years of construction (removal of the track, asphalting, etc.) by the Regionalverband Ruhr, the combined cycle and hiking trail was handed over to the public in May 2007. As a signpost of the cycle path serve oversized, about 1.50 meters high colored figures.

    The 7-million-euro project was 90 percent funded by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the district government of Münster as part of the ecology program Emscher -Lippe. Another ten percent was own funds of the Regionalverband Ruhr.

    I found the track to be totally different on another visit. There is hardly anything like this here.
