Kilometre designations on the map start in Hardeshøj and end in Skovmose. The path is signposted in both directions.
You’ll find the largest accumulation of burial mounds in Sønderjylland in Blomeskobbel, and outside the forest there’s a long barrow with a particularly tragic history.

Superstition amongst those living in the area meant that nobody then dared to fetch the stones that he’d cut.
Take a refreshing dip on a warm summer day at one of the three Blue Flag beaches at Fynshav, Mommark and Drejby.
