I have "unsorted" points from various sources - steming from a hiking track / path.
How can I create one line from the closest points (...following the track). I´ve already imported all points to one layer, but I´m not able to create a proper line.

Here is one option using the
Distance matrix tool and the
PointConnector plugin. This is provided you have the points in one layer and that the goal is to connect by closest neighbours.
Start by creating a distance matrix for your point layer. Set both input and target layer to your points, set "Use only the nearest (k) target points" to 1 and save the result as a .csv file.
Then use the
PointConnector plugin, setting "Point" to your point layer, and "From-to" to the distance matrix.
