Rold Skov forest has an abundance of forest tracks, all of which are all good for hiking. The hiking tour leaflets for Rold Skov forest and Rebild Bakker highlight some of the most accessible and spectacular hiking tours with yellow. The yellow colour is also found on the tracks themselves, where yellow spots are painted on tree trunks or large rocks. About 60 kilometres of hiking route are marked. Follow the yellow route and keep the leaflet in your back pocket - then you will never get lost in the vast forest. All the yellow routes are linked to the many car parks, from where shorter or longer paths are marked and their length is indicated on the map. Nearly all attractions in the forest can be reached by following the yellow routes.
Normally, the forest tracks are only for motor vehicles working in the forest, however, in the state-owned part of Rold Skov forest, many of the forest tracks are in such good condition that they can be used by disabled persons with e.g. an electric scooter or similar motorised wheelchair, though there is no guarantee. Around the St. Økssø lake a path has been established for wheelchair users.
The state-owned forest only makes up one-quarter of Denmark’s largest original forest, and other rules apply in the private areas of the forest. Nevertheless, there are adventures awaiting any person who ventures into the great forest. The Nature and Culture Centre of Rold Skov forest has published maps covering all of Rold Skov.
