Gjerrildbanestien

It is quite an extraordinary experience to travel along Gjerrildbanestien. The path is level at all times, however the landscape around it is continuously changing. The path is cleared and functions as a hiking trail and bicycle path, and a part of the route is asphalted. In Ryomgaard, the path joins Kaløstien.

Public path of 45,4 km – Gjerrild to Allingåbro.
