Tribeč area offers many interesting hiking paths close to the city Nitra and can be accessible from the railway. 

Tribeč is also very popular with mountain bikers since there are a lot of paths interweaving the hills.

Since the railway is located in a flat area of the country mostly in a close proximity to the river Váh, it could be potentially visited by all people, even with reduced mobility. There is no steep incline and it should be accessible by anyone.

There is no plan in action at the moment. Passenger transport was cancelled, it may still be used for cargo transport.
