The nature trail
The nature trail is established on a section of the previous railway between Odder and Horsens and has a length of about 6 km. The trail leads through a variety of landscapes with a fascinationg and varied vegetation. And according to the season it is possible to find a great variety of fruits and berries. On parts of the route you have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful view over the Åkjær estate with its luscious farm land.
The easiest way to reach the trail is to drive from Odder by the road to Horsens. Halfway between Ørting and Hundslund the trail begins at your right, and at your left a great parking place is located. We recommend you, however, to make the beautiful detour past the Rathlousdal Estate; At the roundabout you turn in direction of Skanderborg through Rathlousdal Allé by Kongshusvej and turn to the left towards Oldrup by Lundhoffvej. After 1 km you turn to the left towards Åkjær by Åkjærvej.
You are now passing through a very beautiful landscape, a characteristic sunken road through field and wood. Having passed the areas of Odder Golf Club you get through a typical, Danish beech wood. You now reach the old railway bridge, leading under the nature trail. just after the brigde you may turn to the left to Bilsbæk, and start your walk at the parking place located at the old railway station or you may choose to turn right and start at the parking place just before the bend.
