    From Strabeek and Valkenburg the Pieterpad follows the Geul along a very beautiful "wild" stretch. The river can run its course; banks collapse, trees fall over in the water. The walkway along the river is elevated with the current far below you. Then again you walk low, next to the water, followed by a climb up, Berg. Just before Terblijt you can see an open abandoned deep marl quarry, quarry Blom; what a hole! The long descent through the Bemelergrubbe takes you past small marl caves and along the foot of the Bemelerberg. From above you have a view over the Maasdal and Maastricht.You will soon be walking through the streets of the outskirts of Maastricht. The old town starts past the station and the medieval town lies over the old bridge on the west bank of the Maas.Only a few more kilometers, up the last mountain past Fort Sint-Pieter to the top! There is the end point of the Pieterpad; Congrats! This is a great achievement: walking through your own country! In addition to the performance, the reward is also the impressive image of the quarry and the GR5 that passes through it. Who knows, may have arisen earlier or the desire to continue, to go further, into that wide walking world arises here.
